Do these coincidences impress you?

Both Presidents were shot in the back of the head, on the Friday before a major holiday, while seated beside their wives, neither of whom were injured.

Both were in the presence of another couple, and in each case that man was also wounded by the assassin.

After both assassinations there were loud and insistent claims that the fatal shot must have come from a different direction.

Each President in his thirties married a socially prominent twenty-four year old girl who spoke French fluently.

While in the White House, each President had a family of three children, and both lost a child through death.

Both Lincoln and Kennedy were second children.

Both had been boat captains.

Both were related to a U.S. Senator, Attorney General, ambassador to Great Britain, and the mayor of Boston.

Each had been elected to Congress in the year '47 and were vice-presidential runners-up in the year '56.

Each was elected president in '60.

Before each was elected, a sister died. Both had a friend named Billy Graham and knew an Adlai Stevenson.

President Kennedy had a secretary named Mrs. Lincoln and President Lincoln had a secretary named John Kennedy.

The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters.

Both were succeeded by vice-presidents named Johnson: Andrew born in 1808 and Lyndon in 1908, both of whom had 13 letters in their names and two daughters.

Both assassins have fifteen letters in their names.

Booth shot Lincoln in a theater and fled to a warehouse. Oswald shot Kennedy from a warehouse and fled to a theater.

Both assassins were in their turn assassinated by shooters who used a Colt revolver and fired only one, fatal shot.

Do these coincidences impress you?

How about another one:

A month before Lincoln was assassinated he was in Monroe, Maryland. A month before Kennedy was assassinated he was in Marilyn Monroe.

Not much coincidence at all when you take into account historical context.

Lincoln was arguably the first and one of the biggest tyrant POTUS. Silenced/jailed the opposition media, refused to let states out of the Union (e.g. Virginia), and led to the greatest bloodshed in the history of this nation via the Civil War. If you don't believe me, there is ample evidence from the writings of Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo.

JFK was arguably the last hope for our nation...and he was assassinated for it. Believed in The Constitution, Founding Fathers, sound money, etc..

There were a lot of ups and downs between the 2, but there is no comparison between tyrant Lincoln and last hope JFK IMHO.

Gary North said that Lincoln's role in the civil war during the westward expansion made some disasters inevitable, but frankly the country was growing too quickly and the Texas purchase and Mex/American war altered the American dynamic greatly. Still some interesting coincidences. Snopes doesn't see anything special: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/linkin-kennedy/

I used to believe your revisionist history opinion of Lincoln until I woke up. What you're regurgitating is very popular with CNN and MSNBC supporter types. I suggest that you check out Dinesh D'Sousa's documentary "Death of A Nation". He provides an interesting perspective that may be helpful to you.

You forgot the biggest one, both issued money that bypassed the central bank.
