Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire.

When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, „henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body.

—Abraham Lincoln, in a journal entry
December 3rd, 1863
