Was Abe Lincoln really a vampire hunter?
Sunday marks Abraham Lincoln's 203rd birthday. The nation's 16th president was born Feb. 12, 1809.
And interest in his life - and assassination - remains sky-high.
Two movies about him are on the way. Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" starring Daniel Day-Lewis debuts in the fall, and the less-historically accurate "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" hits the big screen in June.
His tomb and memorial site attract a quarter-million visitors a year. Most make a point of rubbing the nose of the Lincoln statue for luck.
And in the ten years since it opened, well over 3 million people have toured the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
CBS News was given unprecedented access to the tomb and a vault in the museum, enabling viewers to see remarkable artifacts and to hear little-known stories about "Honest Abe."
