Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt in the Same Photo

April 15, 2013

How likely is it that Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln would be in the same photograph, when Roosevelt was only six years old at the time of Lincoln’s assassination?  The photo below shows Lincoln’s funeral procession passing the Roosevelt Mansion in New York City.  Two little boys, identified as Teddy and Elliot Roosevelt,  look out from the second story window.  One of history’s little coincidences, in remembrance of President Lincoln. Pretty cool.

Happy 204th, Honest Abe

Abraham Lincoln successfully led the country through its greatest internal crisis, the American Civil War, preserving the Union and ending slavery.

That’s probably worth a high-five or a helmet star or something, isn’t it?  Today, on his 204th birthday, we remember our 16th president.

April 15: Yes it’s tax day, but also Lincoln Assassination Day

April 15, 2012

lincoln-chairYes, it’s Tax Day. But it’s also the day in 1865 that Abraham Lincoln died after being shot the night before while watching a show in Washington D.C.’s Ford’s Theater. He was 56 and the first U.S. president to be assassinated.

What’s this got to do with factory automation? Well, the chair that Lincoln was sitting in when he was shot by John Wilkes Booth resides — blood stains and all — in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich.

Ford, of course, is considered the father of modern factory automation. And now you know.
