Jim Gibbons Presents "The Eerie Similarities Between John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln"
John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln held two presidencies, one hundred years apart. Though different moments in time, both men’s lives which included their wives, their children, and the times they lived in, ran directly parallel to each other.
Historian Jim Gibbons will discuss the similarities between our 35th and 16th Presidents of the United States, from the number of children each had, to the letters in their last names, to the places where they were to die. Gibbons will present many of the similarities that repeatedly and eerily mapped these presidents’ paths, which headed both men toward their tragic rendezvous with destiny.
