Strange Adventures Of Our Presidents

Remember when George Washington stopped the Civil War, or Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1789?

No?  Means you got a better education than you think, as actors looking like Washington and Lincoln proposed this as an interesting "what if?" with Washington and Lincoln switching places as Presidents in "Assignment In Eternity" from Strange Adventures #83 (August, 1957) by Otto Binder, Sid Greene and Joe Giella, under a Gil Kane cover  Odder still, that just starts the story of time traveling adventure, involving the teacher at the board....pretty high concept for 6 pages!

Better still, this story was reprinted in Strange Adventures #231 (July-August, 1971) under a Sid Greene cover, with reprints of stories of Adam Strange, the Atomic Knights...

...and flying gorillas!

You can also find the presidential tale in Showcase Presents: Strange Adventures Volume #2, which came out in 2013....but, the tale is reprinted in black and white.
