1.Abraham Lincoln was born in 1808. John F. Kennedy was born in 1908. Lincoln became president in 1860. JFK became president in 1960. They were both killed on Fridays. Booth who shot Lincoln was born in 1839 and Oswald who shot JFK was born in 1939. Lincoln's personal assistant was Kennedy while Kennedy's personal assistant was Lincoln. The names of the presidents elected after Lincoln and Kennedy were both Johnson's.

2. If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle. If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.

...and if the horse has all four feet up in the air, he died because the horse fell on him...

(actually this weird fact is generally true for the statues here in DC. Boy, do we have a lot of statues of soldiers on horses around here. It's kind of fun to look for secret symbols like that.)

Horse on it's back, rider underneath and flat as a pancake. I don't see the issue there.

Thank you! I have heard JFK was born 1908 many times when comparing Lincoln and Kennedy! I'm glad you corrected it.

I also found the coincidences exaimined (many are not unexpected) at snopes...

Lincoln and Kennedy Coincidences : snopes.com

I did find this about the 1908 from Snopes....
