I felt a little unworthy of the cause when I discovered my own "research" had not uncovered the hotness that was the following BDiH. He was instead first brought to my attention by Ingrid, who is herself part of a very worthy cause (we history people love our libraries!).
HISTORIC BONER NO. 15 Lewis Powell, would-be assassin
Yeah, he was a racist, yeah, he tried to murder someone, and yeah, he had a violent temper, but he wasn't the one who assassinated Lincoln. And he was really, really hot.
And I'm just going to leave it at that.
Next Time: It's finally time for the ladies!
