  • TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION

    This is from a friend of mine. id=size4> id=teal>

    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.

    You might also be interested in this.

    Have a history teacher explain it----- 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.

    Interesting?

        Well my history teachers and professors always made a point that history has some very puzzling links. But their biggest point was that generations that forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Makes you wonder about the revisionist or lack of history that our children are being taught in school these days. History was my most favorite subject and I have passed that passion on to my own kids.

          History is a fascinating subject for me, especially the study of military history. You are right Carl, much history has been subtly changed by various historical revisionists who look at it through their attitudes and beliefs rather than what actually happened and studying the memoirs of those who participated in the making of history.

            Hi Don,

            I didn't know that you were interested in military history. What period in history are you most interested in? In my case, it's from 1850 to 1950...more or less. I also enjoy reading ancient military history, I just don't get a chance to do it as much. It's one thing to shoot your enemy, but to have to hack him to death with a blade must have been intense.

            In modern history, I am interested in the Civil War and the Wars in Europe. Although I don't limit myself to any one thing. In the 20th century, I find the air wars particularly fascinating.

            So long now,

            David

                This is getting strange. I just found out that two other model railroaders are interested in military history. I have been lead to believe that I was alone in my likes. I have been reading military history since high school. At one time I was big into wargaming, the paper kind. I used to subscribe to several magazines like Strategy and Tactics, and Command. My interest has always been 19th and early 20th century American and European. Although lately I have been reading about the Byzantine Empire.

                This interest has lead me into reading alternate history fiction lately such as Harry Turtledove’s books about World War One.
