The Railsplitter

Today, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter officially hits movies. As such, we thought it fitting to pay tribute to the original Railsplitter—as opposed to the axe wielding vampire killer.

 

The Railsplitter (1860) by an unknown artist. The paintaing now resides at the Chicago History Museum courtesy of a gift by Miss Maibelle Heikes Justice.
