INTERESTING FACT:  Little known facts about Abraham Lincoln:

He was a wrestler – he lost one of about 300 matches – a record that earned him recognition in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

He signed legislation that created the U.S. Secret Service – Originally, the agency was designed to stop currency counterfeiting.

He had a patent – in 1849, Lincoln obtained a patent for a method that kept steamboats afloat in shallow waters.

He was born in Kentucky – although Illinois claims the title “Land of Lincoln”, he lived in Kentucky and Indiana during his early years. He moved to Illinois in 1830 at the age of 21.
