Did Abraham Lincoln have wooden teeth?

Answer

Many common historical presidential myths exist, including that George Washington, not Abraham Lincoln, had wooden teeth manufactured by Paul Revere, when in fact both did not. The long-standing tradition that Abraham Lincoln drafted his Gettysburg Address on the back of an envelope is also untrue, according to About.com.

Another historical presidential myth about Abraham Lincoln involves the Lincoln Memorial. It is rumored that his hands were sculpted to form the letters "A" and "L" in American Sign Language. The National Parks Service dispels this myth as purely coincidental. Another myth about Lincoln's statue within the Lincoln Memorial is that the face of Robert E. Lee is carved on the back of the statue, which is also untrue.
