Chupacabra in the White House - Did Abe Lincoln Have a Dark Secret?

OK, folks so this really is a joke post. You can all blame Harry Smeltzer over at Bull Runnings. This morning I posted a story from Yahoo on my Facebook page about the supposed capture of a Chupacabra (that mythical creature). Harry suggested it was the perfect time for a blog post, you know, to boost the number of hits on the site.

But really, did Lincoln ever hear the legend of the Chupacabra. Were US Troops in the old southwest prior to the Civil War really searching for the mythical creature?

Just goes to prove that I'm not above a little bit of tom foolery, especially when someone else more brilliant than myself suggests such. Let's see if Harry's theory is correct and I get an uptick in hits today.

A picture - that's what you need.

Well Harry, that's a good suggestion, but there's two reasons I'm not going there.

1. I don't want to gross people out.

2. I don't want to be on the hit list of the Lincoln scholars out there.

Can't wait to check my sitemeter after today and see if your theory holds true.

Just for the record, I stopped by looking for Civil War Naval information. Not that I haven't read all the Chupacabra stories out there...

Thanks for a good laugh!

Well Steven, you must be pretty disappointed. I haven't actually published a blog post on Civil War naval topics in quite a while. I've gotten sidetracked lately. However, if you look back to some of my older posts, you should find some interesting stuff. Thanks for stopping in, and come back often!
