Do you know about all the eerie parallels between Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy? Elected 100 years apart, both former boat captains, both replaced by men named Johnson, the list goes on — except the “parallels” are routine coincidences, exaggerations, or outright lies. Join our experts for a fun look at what’s fact and what’s fiction in this famous claim. The event features Dr. Samuel Wheeler, the Illinois State Historian, and John T. Shaw, author of two books on President Kennedy.
Book/Ticket package includes John T. Shaw's newest book, Rising Star, Setting Sun: Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, and the Presidential Transition that Changed America.
