Batman - the Original from the 1800s!!

Never heard of this before and thought it was interesting/fun enough to pass on here.

The claim is that is guy was "Batman" in the 1890s.

Reads a little like an Internet hoax, too good to be true. What would stop someone cosplaying in modern times and taking a picture with old-fashioned technology? Doubtful the guy lived in the 1800s.

Walt Whitman was Batman?!

Do i contradict myself?
Very well then, I contradict myself.
I am large. I contain multitudes.
I am darkness. I am the night.
I am Batman!

He looks much more like a cat than a bat anyway.

In my day, Batman had to walk 5mi to school uphill in Gotham, in the snow, both ways!
