about this item

How much could Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy have in common? A surprising number of things. Some were coincidence--both were over six feet tall, both studied law, both were soldiers and boat captains.

But Lincoln and Kennedy also shared similar agendas during their time in office. For instance, Lincoln met with Frederick Douglass to support the abolitionist movement, and Kennedy met with Martin Luther King Jr. to support the civil rights movement. In addition, both presidents lost a son while in office, and, of course, both were assassinated and succeeded by Southern Democrats named Johnson (Andrew Johnson and Lyndon B. Johnson). In this illuminating book, Gene Barretta brings insight to this study of two of the country's most famous presidents.
