    Edgar Allan Poe poses with Abraham Lincoln in Mathew Brady’s Washington, D.C. studio- February 4th, 1849. They look kinda creepy together, don't they? I think this is cross education english and history!

    The real Lincoln loved Poe's works of poetry and fiction, but the two gentlemen never met in real life. That photo in the book which shows them posing together is nicely faked and found in the book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

    unfortunately, another fake photo making the rounds. :(

Edgar Allan Poe was an American author and poet who has been considered by many to be part of the American Romantic Movement. He is best known...

Hopefully he was... (It is still unknown whether he had an affair or not)

President-elect Abraham Lincoln, February 24, 1861 by Alexander Gardner, 1821-1882

I know. I have a lot of pet peeves where 'death photos' are concerned. Frenzied acceptance of any glamorous, tragic, or 'poignant' story is gleefully accepted with no accompanying research. This photo for example, has never been authenticated as a photo of Edgar Allen Poe. As a matter of fact MANY maintain that it is, in no way, Poe. Yet I see it all over the place, authoritatively titled as Edgar Allen Poe.

    I know corpses never really look like they did when they had life to them...but this doesn't even really look like Poe...

    I do not believe it was Poe. People speculate for no good reason.
