Sorry Canadians!

The only U.S. president to own a patent and a saloon:
Abraham Lincoln. His patent was for a device to lift boats over sandbars. His saloon was a miserable failure.

I wonder how that device worked.

Out of all the Presidents, I would never had thought he would have owned a saloon. Although we have had actors and peanut farmers!

And even worse, we have had career politicians.

Bonus Fact: As a young man, Lincoln was a really good wrestler....he was only defeated once out of over 300 matches.

.......Never would thought that either.

For some reason I think visually seeing Lincoln wrestle would have been a funny site,all legs and arms!
