I Scream, You Scream, But the Union Didn’t Scream for Ice Cream

Abraham Lincoln never had an ice cream sundae. Neither, for that matter, did Dolley Madison.
Ice Cream sundae
Ice cream sundaes did not exist until the 1890s.

This *is so* a fascinating fact related to *The Secrets of Mary Bowser,* on account of Mary not being able to go out for an ice cream sundae that did not yet exist. You may set a scene in an ice cream emporium in the 1850s, but you do not want to fudge the historical accuracy by having anyone order a sundae.

Ha ha, get it? "Fudge"!
