  • Uh, no.. Lincoln was never arrested for anything. But, since you say the record was sealed you don't have to prove anything.

  • This is a bogus fact, probably started by some drunk college frat boy. Lincoln was NEVER arrested. I completely concur with Xetheare. This is a pathetic fraud. Not only was Lincoln never arrested, but back then "charges" and "records" were informal. Records were only kept for those people imprisoned for crimes.

  • Abraham Lincoln WAS arrested; but they have the reason wrong. He was arrested and held briefly by military police. The reason for the arrest was treason.
