Everyone has their own skeletons in the closet. So, Abraham Lincoln, one of America's greatest presidents, not the one who really seems. In the daytime he is a loving husband and father, and at night - a merciless killer of vampires.
It all started on the day when vampire killed Abraham's mother. And since then, the future US president has been struggling withImmortal bloodsuckers, which are supported by slaveholders. The army of bloodsuckers, whom Lincoln dared to challenge, is growing every day. But Abraham Lincoln is not shit!
It is the victory over hordes of otherworldly muck not only that will help Lincoln save his family and his people from imminent death, but also lead him to a well-deserved the presidential chair.
