Lincoln's and Kennedy's sons died on July 16
March 27, 2008
Another Lincoln and Kennedy Comparison that we should all be aware of...
President Lincoln had a son Thomas "Tad" Lincoln was born April 4, 1853 died July 16, 1871
President Kennedy had a son John F. Kennedy Jr. born November 25, 1960 died on July 16, 1999
Both Sons died on the same date of July 16th.

Thank you. That is an interesting fact.
Thinks facts on McCarthy are incorrect
March 16, 2008
Thanks very much for the Lyrics of "We didn't start the fire." I don't know if you care, but you have the facts all wrong on McCarthy. If you do care, I suggest you do some research instead of just repeating the myth.
- USA (15549)
As far as I know, the information on Sen. Joe McCarthy are correct and based on historical research. If you have any information that is different, I would be glad to hear it.
Wow, that's freaky & cool
March 10, 2008
wow, thats freaky & cool at the same time!!!!!
- USA (15518)
Yes, the similarities are really strange.
What is the image in the video?
March 8, 2008
At 1:28 during the 1956 lyrics in the Billy Joel video, there is a black and white image of something suspended by ropes. What is this an image of?
Pamela - USA (15502)
It is a photo of a black man or African-American tied to a tree before being lynched. Even during that time, some innocent blacks were hung in the deep South by members of the Ku Klux Klan.
Thinks the mafia had something to do with it
March 4, 2008
you do not get in bed with the MAFFIA and leave when you like. TEXAS laws i believe prohibit the removal of a body out of the state without a autopsy but the body of KENNEDY was quickly removed ??why, you sup with the DEVIL you pay the price
raymond - UK (15479)
There have been theories that the mafia was involved in Kennedy's assassination, but they were discounted.
Federal laws supersede state laws, so they were able to remove the body.
Lincoln and Kennedy fought bankers
February 25, 2008
There are two other similarities between Lincoln and Kennedy. Lincoln went to the central bank to get a loan to finance the civil war. The central bank wanted to charge 30% interest. Lincoln said no way and the federal government then printed its own money for the civil war........Lincoln was then assasinated.
Kennedy signed executive order 11110 taking the power away from the central bank (federal reserve) to coin money and regulate its value. The power was given back to Congress and the federal government started printing the Silver Certificate currency......Kennedy was assasinated 5 months later.
Look it up. Mess with the rich bankers......get assasinated.
- USA (15434)
Both presidents did have dealings with the bank system that caused hard feelings. Lincoln's actions were probably more serious, since he needed to finance the Civil War. But in both cases, assassinating the president would not change the laws that had been made. In fact, it would be uncertain whether the vice-president would be even more tough on the banks.
There were stronger feelings against Lincoln because of the Civil War. Also, Kennedy had enemies in the Mafia, CIA, and Cuba. So, it is unlikely that either assassination had anything to do with the bankers.
Coincidences and Nigerian history
February 18, 2008
Please Google Search: John Kennedy and Olisa Agbakoba also Google Search: Abraham Lincoln and Obafemi Awolowo. See my website http://adebayo.blog.co.uk on Historical coincidences as they concern American presidents and some Nigerian political figures Figures. I also have coincidences between Nigeria and other nations like Germany, Russia, India, United Kingdom. Cheers
Augustine - United Kingdom (15372)
Your website is a good way for student to learn more about Nigerian history. It would be good for you to let schools in Nigeria know about your website.
I will post your letter as a Reader Feedback. Keep up the good work
Who would appreciate historical coincidences?
February 18, 2008
How can I find people who would appreciate my website on Historical Coincidences? How can I drive traffic to my website on Historical Coincidences. Thanks
augustine - United Kingdom (15374)
There are a number of sites specializing in historical coincidences, but there is always room for more. Research the other sites to see what makes them successful. If you have some coincidences with good information about them, people will be attracted. But also check into historical societies and local history buffs to find people interested in your coincidences. Soon the word will get around about your website.
Men who were with Lincoln and Kennedy
February 18, 2008
The last names of the men with Lincoln and Kennedy when they were assassinated, Rathbone and Conolly, have the same number of letters
- USA (15376)
Thanks for the interesting information. There are many strange coincidences.
Conspiracy theories on assassinations
February 18, 2008
The real coincidences are this: Niether real assasin was caught and killed. The guys who died didn't do the killings, one was a man of mistaken identity (JWB) was not the real JWB, (the real JWB broke his leg jumping onto the stage of the Ford theater), his body was dug up some time ago and it didnt't show any signs of a broken leg per "Histories Mysteries", and Lee Harvey Oswald didn't really kill Kennedy. Both Lincoln and Kennedy were going to get rid of the "Federal Reserve Bank" which is niether Federal nor does it have any reserves, and that is the real reason they were killed, all the rest is B.S. and the stories fabricated to fit the circumstances.
- USA (15381)
There were many rumors that John Wilkes Booth escaped. Several people later claimed to be Booth. Around 1995 some people wanted to dig up Booth's grave to see if it really was him buried there. The State of Maryland court denied the request. Thus his body was never checked as some claim it was.
The evidence that Oswald shot Kennedy is overwhelming. He even admitted it to his brother. But that is not to say others were not involved in the assassination. See Oswald's biography at: http://www.school-for-champions.com/biographies/lee_harvey_oswald.htm
The Federal Reserve Bank was not formed until 1913, well after Lincoln died. There is more evidence that the Mafia or Cuba was involved in the Kennedy assassination than anyone from the bank. Connection of the Federal Reserve Bank to any assassination is very weak.
Lincoln's Chief of Detectives
February 18, 2008
If you will do more research you will find as I did that the Chief of Detectives that was in charge to get Abraham Lincoln and Mrs. Lincoln on their train safely to Washington, D. C. 's name was John Kennedy. This is fact not fiction. What kind of transportation did John Kennedy use to get to Washington after he had been elected? and what was the names of the Secret Servicemen that escorted him?
Thank you very much.
Walter - USA (15382)
Thanks for the information that the Chief of Detectives' name was Kennedy.
John Kennedy liked the Lincoln Continental, so I assume that is the type of car he used after getting elected. Previous presidents used the Cadillac.
I do not know the names of the Secret Servicemen.
Wants details on autopsies
February 13, 2008
why is there no physical description of oswald and boothe in their autopsies? How about oswald's military records and his texas employment records? How did oswald sustain himself seeing as how he rarely ever held a job? How was he able to 'incidentally' secure the job at the Texas school book depository at just the right time to kill kennedy? Why is it that only one old sick man is the only one to have a film of Kennedy's murder? Why did some one remove the bullet chipped curb across the street from the depository? Who paid for Oswald's international traveling expenses? Has anyone made compaisons of key players in their lives following the assasination? How was Boston Corbitt kin to 'gentleman' Jim Corbett of boxing fame?
Calvin - USA (15342)
You can see about Oswald's life in his biography at: http://www.school-for-champions.com/biographies/lee_harvey_oswald.htm
Our comparison of coincidences concerning the deaths of Lincoln and Kennedy is not a detailed account of all the factors involved in their assassinations. There are a number of books devoted to those details.
Some interesting facts about the shelling
January 23, 2008
My Grandfather was Provos Marshall at Camp Roberts when a Japanese submarine shelled Goleta. Huell Howser has a one-hour documentary on the event. The movie "1941" by Steven Spielberg was done as a "comedy" on the event. My grandfather was Col. V.N. Scott(deceased 1986). A good friend of my grandfather owned a butcher shop in Paso Robles. My grandfather told me that Japanese corpses washed ashore and his friend hung them in his meat locker. This is all I know.
Scott - USA (15199)
Thanks for the interesting information on the event.
I wonder how the corpses came about? I didn't hear about the submarine being destroyed. Unless that was later, as a response to the shelling.
This song by Billy Joel is a masterpiece
December 6, 2007
this song by billy joel is a masterpiece, i have to do a project on it in history and im glad, because if it wasnt for my history teacher i wouldn never have heard this amazing song. i hope will inspire everyone to really think about the years involved behind the making on this song and all the work that was put into making it on billy joel's part
Alena - USA (14919)
Yes, I agree that it is a great song. And it is good to look at the history behind the events.
This song by Billy Joel is amazing
November 29, 2007
This song by Billy Joel is....is amazing. right now i have to do a project on the things in his song for school and his song really has me thinking about evrything that happened then and thats happing now too. It really makes me think about the war going on in Iraq and like is it really worth losing all those lives for our towers? But then i think about how we are helping the government get back on its feet over there. This song can make a girl think really hard about more than her hair and nails and how they look for school. So I must say im extremly glad my history teacher gave her class this project because who knows it might make someone do something and change something as in the Domino Theaory, you know?
Alena :) - USA (14877)
Yes the song is amazing. Many people wish he would write and sing another one that is about more recent events.
I'm glad it got you thinking. Hopefully, we can all make the world a better place to live.
