I'm sure some of you have gotten this email. But just in case you haven't here it is...


Look what happens when a President gets elected in a year with a "0" at the
end. Also notice it goes in increments of 20 years.

1840: William Henry Harrison (died in office)

1860: Abraham Lincoln (assassinated)

1880: James A. Garfield (assassinated)

1900: William McKinley (assassinated)

1920: Warren G. Harding (died in office)

1940: Franklin D. Roosevelt (dies in office)

1960: John F. Kennedy (assassinated)

1980: Ronald Reagan (survived assassination attempt)

2000: George W. Bush ?????

And to think that we had two guys fighting it out in the courts to be the
one elected in 2000.

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 !!!!

Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford.' Kennedy was shot in a car
called 'Lincoln' - made by 'Ford.' Booth and Oswald were assassinated before
their trials.

And here's the kicker .....

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

Creepy huh?

I don't know much about American History (my bad) but if there is any discrepancies do say so!
