Presidential Fun Fact of Yesterday

It occurred to me last night that I forgot to type up my Presidential Fun Fact of the Day. So because I'm lazy I'll just throw it up later today as Today's fact. (Assuming I don't forget again.)

To make up for yesterday's lack, here's a little bonus tidbit:

Skippy, Abraham Lincoln's dog, was one of the first dogs ever to have its picture taken. In 1861 when Lincoln had to leave for D.C., he was told his beloved dog was unlikely to survive the long trip. Lincoln had Skippy's photograph taken so he could keep a reminder of his pet.
