Abraham Lincoln Believe it or Not!

Abraham Lincoln performed the first known instance of a chokeslam.

Carl Sandburg, noted Lincoln biographer, wrote in his 1940 book "The Prairie Years" that he wrestled, and that one local champion cheated by stomping on his foot. Sandburg writes: "This exasperated Lincoln so that he lost his temper, lifted Armstrong up by the throat and off the ground, shook him like a rag, and then slammed him to a hard fall, flat on his back."
