Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846
John F Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946

Obviously people might think that both men entering politics 100 years apart, and then being elected president also 100 years apart is a great coincidence. However, when two people are separated by about X years in history, it seems very likely, in fact more likely than not, that major milestones in their lives are separated by roughly the same increment as well. This is entirely expected. The parallel in political careers diverges, for Kennedy won a Senate seat in 1952, while Lincoln lost his Senate bid in 1858.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960

This is, of course, no more remarkable than two victims of assassination being elected 96 years apart or 104. One hundred is just such a nice, round number that people see extreme significance in it. There are many people who have been elected president 100 years apart. And each being assassinated doesn't deepen this coincidence one iota, because we chose two assassinated leaders and then found that by coincidence they were elected 100 years apart.

The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters

Their successor's names also had 7 letters. Perhaps seven letter last names are quite common. Both were particularly concerned with civil rights It would be more amazing if they hadn't been concerned with civil rights, because civil rights were THE SOCIAL CONCERNS of the day in both instances. During both of these time periods the country was nearly torn to pieces over the issue. In fact, to characterize the Lincoln Presidency as being "particularly concerned with civil rights" seems a comic understatement.

Both wives lost their children while living in the White House

This is a muddied statement that ought to read "Both their wives lost a child while living in the White House." In fact the Lincoln's lost three of their four children before the children reached adulthood. The death of children was not uncommon at the time.The Kennedy child was a miscarriage, which is not only surprisingly common, but makes the two losses not really comparable.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday

Lincoln was actually shot on Thursday and died on Friday, whereas Kennedy was shot and died on Friday. Once again the full story has not quite the parallel that the simple story suggests.

Both Presidents were shot in the head

When someone is trying to kill a person, they will likely shoot them in the head. So this is entirely expected.

Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln

Lincoln had two secretaries, John J. Nicolay and John M. Hay. They are pictured in the book Dear Mr. Lincoln, Letters to the President, by Harold Holzer. Did Kennedy choose Evelyn Lincoln as his personal secretary from a pool of applicants because of his name? Sometimes coincidence is not all it seems. In fact, Robert Lincoln the eldest son of Abraham Lincoln, was saved from a nasty accident by J. Wilkes Booth's brother. Yet another cosmic connection?

Both were assassinated by Southerners

J. Wilkes Booth was born in Maryland. If one were trying to force a cosmic connection, then Maryland might pass muster as a southern state. It was in the Union, however. The best a person could argue is that Wilkes was a southern sympathizer - maybe.

Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson

It isn't as though each man having a southerner as Vice President was a random occurrence. Each was a northern politician trying to win an election by choosing a southern running mate. Things that people do by design are not coincidences - and it isn't as though Johnson is a strange last name.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808 Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908

There is that 100 year separation again.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839 Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939

They are trying for the 100 year thing again! Booth was actually born in 1838.

Both assassins were known by their three names

A biography of Booth on the world wide web suggests that he was known as J. Wilkes Booth. Killers are often known by their full (three) names and this may be applied to each after the fact.

Both names are composed of fifteen letters

The length of a name is a random variable, where the probability of very long or very short names is small and the expected length is about 5 letters. Then, the distribution of the summed lengths of three names is going to be sharply peaked at 15 letters.

Booth ran from a theater and was caught in a warehouse Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theater

This coincidence results from the sheer number of theatres and warehouses, but the story of Booth's escape is so complex that to characterize it as "ran from a theatre and was caught in a warehouse" skirts the suburbs of misrepresentation. Booth was ultimately caught in a tobacco shed on a farm, which hardly qualifies as a warehouse.

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials

Booth died in a gun battle, so reports of his assassination are highly exaggerated.

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland A week before Kennedy was shot, he was in Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe died over one year before Kennedy's assassination. There is no Monroe, Maryland known to the U.S. Post Office at least. Perhaps there was in 1865.
