Origins[edit | edit source]

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States and is revered as one of the greatest American Presidents of all time. During his term he petitioned for the abolition of slavery and has become an icon of the anti-slavery movement. He was assasinated by John Wilkes Booth in 1865 during a theatre performance of Our American Cousin. He is one of four presidents to be carved into the side of Mount Rushmore.

It was mentioned in the season three episode, "The New Guy".

Effects[edit | edit source]

When worn, the hat fills the user with the desire to see all African-American people 'freed from the service of their masters', though the definitions of slave and master are rather loosely defined. The wearer will make attempts to step between a black and white person under the excuse of liberating them, regardless of the actual amount of 'liberation' needed. It would seem the hat is either unaware of changes in slavery and racial discrimination laws or is simply unable to change it's nature.
