[[RuleOfThree Also Also Fact]]: Abraham Lincoln, 140 years before its first usage by Wrestling/TheUndertaker, frickin' '''invented the chokeslam'''. During his youth as a "wrassler", one of Lincoln's opponents made the mistake of stomping on Lincoln's instep with the heel of his boot. As recounted by noted Lincoln biographer Carl Sandburg, "This exasperated Lincoln so that he lost his temper, lifted Armstrong up by the throat and off the ground, shook him like a rag, and then slammed him to a hard fall, flat on his back."[[note]]Another account of the match can be read [[http://rogerjnorton.com/Lincoln48.html here]].[[/note]] [[DefeatMeansFriendship Both men would become good friends.]] Lincoln was inducted into the Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame for this feat (and not out of irony or as an honorary member; he was genuinely inducted).

Lincoln was also the other kind of inventor, also held a patent for a device intended to help boats navigate shallows, making him the only President in American history ever to have held a patent. He was also a licensed bartender and co-owned a pub for a while before entering politics. Thus when Lincoln quipped that he wished he could serve all his generals what his skilled General UsefulNotes/UlyssesSGrant was drinking, he was in a position where he could have done that legally and ''literally''.

''literally''. Additionally, he was a crack target shot with a rifle, and in one recorded instance, joined a group of soldiers who were trying out a new model near the White House; when one remarked that the weapon needed a better sight, Lincoln produced one that he'd whittled out of wood (having tried the rifle beforehand and being similarly unimpressed by its standard sight).

Incidentally, in contrast to most modern-day BadassBaritone depictions, Lincoln's voice was actually [[RealityIsUnrealistic somewhat high-pitched and nasal]]. For something approaching what's considered to be more accurate, consider [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQueA6ackmk this feature]], filmed for Time Magazine. Benjanmin Walker became the first actor to break away from the deep-voiced tradition with his portrayal of the 16th President in, of all things, 2012's ''Film/AbrahamLincolnVampireHunter'', though he pretty much just used the higher register of his normal speaking voice. Creator/DanielDayLewis became the first actor to give a nearly-true representation of the "thin, high pitched" tone that Lincoln is recorded to have possessed, in 2012's ''{{Film/Lincoln}}''; this alone was considered a ''huge'' expose, nevermind that pesky 'obstruction of justice' stuff.

* Creator/DWGriffith's next-to-last film was the {{Biopic}} ''Film/AbrahamLincoln'' (1930). Pretty stagey overall, and heavily fictionalized, but it has its moments.
