Random historical fact- Robert Todd Lincoln was at his fathers bedside when he died from being shot. Sixteen years later, Robert was with President Garfield when he was shot and killed. Twenty years after that, Robert was in the crowd nearby President McKinley when he was shot by his assassin. What does this all mean? I have no clue, but if I was president I wouldnt hang out with Robert Lincoln.

Robert Todd Lincoln (Abraham's son) was at the assassinations of President Lincoln, President Garfield, and President McKinley.
In 1865 Robert Todd Lincoln rushed to his fathers death bed as Aberaham Lincoln lay dyeing. In 1981 he was selected as Sec. of War for President Garfield. ON July 2 he was suppose to travel on a train trip with President Garfield. He was running a little late but got there as the President was being shot by Charles Guiteau. In 1901 he was at the Pan-American exposition in Buffalo, New York. He was in the same building as the President, actualy he wasnt far away when the President was shot by Leon Czolcosg. After this he said he would never be around another President and until his death in 1927 he kept his word.
On this day (+1) in 1901, at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y., President William McKinley was fatally wounded by an assassin (the anarchist, Leon Czolgosz). McKinley would die within days. He would be, ironically, the victim of earlier assassins. Stung by criticism that President Garfield had actually been killed by his doctors (who prodded and probed for a bullet they never found), McKinley's physicians took a wait and see attitude. They waited.and they saw him die. (Ironically, they lost an easy chance to find the bullet in McKinley. Two booths over from where McKinley was shot was a booth displaying a brand new invention. It was called the "X-Ray" machine.) But there were others who thought he was doomed by yet another connection to earlier assassinations. When McKinley was shot while greeting voters, he was awaiting the arrival of a Republican icon. The icon's name was Robert Todd Lincoln. Robert had been at the bedside of his father, Abraham Lincoln (the first assassinated president) when ...
I just found out something interesting (pft! to me, anyway) Robert Todd Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln's oldest son, was in very close proximity to Ford's Theater when his father passed away in 1865 from a gunshot inflicted by John Wilkes Booth with his snazzy new "Super-Soaker Monster XL" as Booth, eyewitnesses said later, loudly declared "BUCKET! I MAKE YOU FEEL EVERY DRIP OF A WATER ON A BEARD!" (I first read that he was at his father's side when he expired, but this appears to be misinformation according to more reputable sources) Anyway...years later, as Secretary of War, Todd Lincoln was present and ready to meet James A. Garfield when President Garfield was assassinated by Charles Guiteau with an electric hamster. Furthermore, when Todd Lincoln entered the Pan-American Exposition Hall in Buffalo, NY, President William McKinley was assassinated by Leon Czolgosz...allegedly from passionate forehead kisses that historians say could have numbered into the millions. OK, my friends...I may have stretched some ...
