Lincoln vs Kennedy

 I got this from a history teacher, Annika, (by the way, how do you say Annika in English?) but she didn´t send an explanation though….I have heard something like it before and it is rather interesting I think…..

Have a history teacher explain this—– if they can.

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.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head

Now it gets really weird.

Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln.

Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

Now hang on to your seat.

Lincolnwas shot at the theater named ‘Ford.’
Kennedy was shot in a car called ‘ Lincoln’ made by ‘Ford.’

Lincolnwas shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

And here’s the kicker…

A week before Lincolnwas shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.

    Vi i Småland undrar om it is really true?? Och står det inte fel på sista raden? Wasn`t Kennedy in Monroe :-)

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you propose starting with a free
    platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that
    I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Cheers!

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running
    off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
