A wise man once said "History....Schmistory"
This is not 'history' any more than any other gossip is history.

You might have a point in that this particular gossip is a very old and ugly American tradition of smearing political opponents by hinting that they have black ancestors, but it isn't 'history' other than reviving old gossip that no one cares about any more.

Do you always repost what people put on you FB page?

This looks to be genuine. Thanks ClosedCaption. Here is a picture of D. Eisenhowers mom at an older age. This woman (Ida Stover Eisenhower) was mixed with Black blood no doubt about it. Her mother (Elizabeth Juda Link Stover) was from a town that had two families with the last name Link. A Black family and a white one. Elizabeth Juda Link Stover died when Ida was 4 and Ida was raised by a white family and married a white man which resulted in D. Eisenhower.
