"As we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of the opportunity provided to serve self-interest when Al Gore created the internet; and we should also thank Mark Zuckerburg and Jack Dorsey for creating Facebook and Twitter out of the kindness of their big hearts and not the thinness of their small wallets."

Abe Lincoln Day 4: Vampire Killing - On why Abraham Lincoln supports Team Jacob

We here at Lost and Founders like to acknowledge when others have done great work. We realize that we don't have a monopoly on good historical research, as such, this piece is far less about our work and more about the work of  Seth Grahame Smith. Recently Mr. Smith just published the novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

For those of you that are incapable of reading, you will likely have trouble navigating this site. Luckily though, the story of Abraham Lincoln and his Vampire Hunting will not be lost to you as they will soon be coming out with a movie. As of yet, they have a preview for your viewing pleasure:

In addition to the preview they have also created a mini-documentary to help inform people of the truth of Lincoln's Vampire Killing.

The research that Mr. Smith also speaks to Lincoln's prowess as a cage fighter within the DC Fight Club. As we all know it takes silver stakes, garlic or holy water to kill Vampires, as such it is no surprise that he pushed for the use of weapons in the fight club. Additionally, if you can remember our post from Day 1, Lincoln was well known for his mixed-martial arts. We all know that Vampires are hella fast, but let's be honest no one is too fast to get out of an arm bar.

Read it, watch it, and most importantly give thanks to Mr. Lincoln for killing those vampires. Team Jacob for Life!
