With the recent success of shows like Ancient Aliens and films such as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, it's safe to assume that nothing is off limits, not even history or our national icons, from receiving a pop culture twist. It is only a matter of time before Hollywood continues the trends with films like Betsy Ross: Samurai Seamstress or the epic story of Pocahontas: Werewolf Princess. I will likely spend the first few days that I teach about the Civil War proving to my students that Lincoln was not a vampire hunter. With that in mind, I felt compelled to create my own list of presidential biopics, but, unlike Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, these films are based on historical fact and not fiction.
