We may have found an even creepier, breathtaking revelation about President Abraham Lincoln. Although, honestly a folk hero and a real legend, Lincoln has very remarkable mystic stories abound about him.
As submitted earlier on this blog, Lincoln had been assassinated by John Wilkes Booth in 1865 for his courageous role in the Emancipation Proclamation. In 1863, Abe Lincoln, the president's son was saved from a potentially deadly train incident by Edwin Booth on a trip from New York to DC. John Wilkes Booth, the elder brother of Edwin, would later fire a single bullet in the back of the president's head a year then in 1865. It is tremendously mind-boggling
THE PRESIDENT'S SON, ABE LINCOLN, AND HIS LIFESAVER EDWIN BOOTH: How it Happened
In 1863, Robert was set to travel from New York to Washington. At a railway station in Jersey City, he wanted a sleeping car. He needed to buy a ticket in a rather physically crowded atmosphere. Wanting to be polite, Lincoln stepped back to wait for his turn. As he made a walk across the platform, his back pressed to one of the train's cars.
This situation probably seemed harmless enough until the train started to move, whipping Abe Lincoln around. It soon dropped him into space between the platform and train, an incredibly dangerous place to be - a hole.
As young Abe Lincoln stood at the end of the platform, there was a train, roaring up and running up. Lincoln lost his balance and fell. Apparently concluding in his mind that it was over, that he was going to be run over by a speeding train, Edward Booth, the younger brother of Wilkes Booth (president Lincoln’s eventual assassinator) saw him and quickly grabbed fallen Lincoln by the collar and pulled him up.
Unknown to the helper, He (Booth) had saved the life of the president’s son. Edwin was happy that he was there to help and Abe was grateful not knowing that it was going to be his lifesaver’s brother John Wilkes Booth who would assassinate his father, the president of the United States: Abraham Lincoln, a year later.
For Little Lincoln and Booth, it was a heroic, reviving experience. But for elders Lincoln and Booth, however, it was a bloody, life-eating event.
Creepy it is, ain’t it?
