Common Facts About JFK's & Lincoln's Murders?

Thu Mar 06, 2003 11:11 pm

A while ago, there was a list of pretty interesting facts that were common of both JFK's and Lincoln's assassinations sent in an E-Mail forward. Can anybody post a link for the whole list, or post some you know?

For those who've never seen what I'm talking about, here are a few that I remember or inferred from the time period:

-Both assassins had three names (Lee Harvey Oswald, John Wilkes Booth)
-Both assassins were later killed. (Oswald- killed by Jack Ruby, Booth- shot in barn(?))
-Both presidents were elected in a "60" year & died in a "63". (JFK- 1960, 1963. Lincoln- 1860, 1863)
-One of Lincoln's secretary's names was Kennedy, one of Kennedy's secretaries was named Lincoln.
-Both had an infant child that died.
-Both were involved in trying to end some form of injustice towards Blacks (Lincoln- Slavery, JFK- Segregation)

If anybody remembers any more, feel free to post them.

This lists all of the "coincidences" between Kennedy and Lincoln, but it also points out inaccuracies with some of them.

It's an amazing list. I always share it with my 7th grade history students. Never ceases to send chills up spines.

Yeah, I saw a special on the Discovery Channel a few nights ago that was amazing. It analyzed the assassination using videos/pictures taken that day, and it did a pretty good job of piecing together the puzzle......of at least the moments before the assassination took place. Then they showed the Zapruder film which was kind of sick, actually. They said that if Zapruder had filmed for a few more seconds, he may have proved that there was a second gunman on the infamous "grassy knoll".

After that show, my mom & I tried to come up with the ones we remembered off the list, which is why I posted this & wanted the whole list.

Have you seen the movie "JFK"? If I recall correctly it featured Kevin Costner? I liked it

I posted a similar thread a few months ago: http://www.airliners.net/discussions/non_aviation/read.main/310248/4/

Didn't spark much interest here, though.. I find it really fascinating.
