Please Delete This[edit]

Please delete this article, there is not a shred of evidence to support the claims of these opportunist "scholars". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:56, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Evidence for Lincolns straight sexuality[edit]

If discussing sexuality of celebrities is worthy for a wikipedia entry it should be at least a complete discussion. There is strong evidence for Lincolns straight sexuality among which is his well documented severe depression after he initially broke off with Mary Todd, strongly indicating he had deep romantic feelings for her. This article thus is one sided and at the very least needs a serious revision. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eizieizz (talkcontribs) 16:00, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

WP:SOFIXIT. A section like that already exists, anyhow. IgnorantArmies 02:54, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

He was straight. If Wikipedia had even as much integrity as Lincoln had in his pinky toe this article would be deleted and salted immediately. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:43, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

More info[edit]

I simply don't have time and not sure of the significance, but wanted to at least drop this article off here:

  • Looks like it is mentioned in the article already. Everyone is gay on the internet.--Milowenthasspoken 17:34, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Lincoln & Speed's differences of slavery[edit]

I've added a citation on this point, specifically a letter Lincoln wrote to Speed in August of 1855. I realize that this doesn't show that their differences continued, as is implied by the article, but I hope this will at least help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thisnameisalsoinuse (talkcontribs) 19:03, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
