Abraham Lincoln was not gay, claims renowned historian

New York, Thu, 31 Dec 2009 ANI

New York, December 31 (ANI): Acclaimed historian Harold Holzer has dismissed claims stating that Abraham Lincoln was a homosexual.


Holzer, a scholar on Lincoln and the political culture of the American Civil War Era, trashed the claim made by playwright and AIDS activist Larry Kramer, who alleged that George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Lewis and Clark and Lincoln were all interested in men.


"I had a private conversation with him [Kramer]," the New York Post quoted Holzer as saying.


"He admitted to me that he made the whole thing up. He said he made it up to raise consciousness," he added.


Holzer further explained: "That he is reviving this hoax is a little bizarre. For half his life, Lincoln shared his bed with other guys. It was the custom. People didn't have so many beds." (ANI)
