Two of my favorite presidents of all time. Well, two of the presidents I hear about almost every time we have discussions on past presidents. But, unfortunately, these two great men who changed the world in ways I can’t even imagine have both been assassinated. While given an assignment to “investigate” the similarities from both assassinations, I’ve been spooked. Honestly, the similarities made me feel creeped out.
First, I’d like to discuss President Abraham Lincoln. Yes, he was known for his great role and leadership during the Civil War. He has gone through rough times and has been under immense pressure in the Civil War. President Abraham has also ended slavery when he began the process of Emancipation Proclamation. But, it wasn’t that simple. He didn’t just simply begin the process then *BAM!* slavery ended, it was a huge struggle for him, at the start, to abolish slavery.
It was unjust and inhumane, children as young as 11 were illegally (ILLEGALLY!!) and forcefully taken from the parents and were sold. A man, one great man had the greatest courage to stop this terrible act of slavery, that man is known as the great President Lincoln. President Abraham Lincoln died on April 15, 1865, in a house across the street in front of Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. where they were watching a play called“Our American Cousin”.
Now, let’s learn a little bit about president John F. Kennedy.
I’ll just go ahead and start listing down the weird similarities between President Lincoln and President John F. Kennedy:
Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.
Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain 7 letters (not like this has to do with anything???)
Both presidents were concerned with Civil Rights
Both presidents wives lost their children while living in the White House.
Both Presidents were shot on a Friday in the head.
Both Presidents were shot in beside the wives.
You can choose to believe that they are weirdly similar and is linking to something. I’m just representing you with the facts I’ve found.
