In honor of both Halloween and the current US presidential election campaign, we take an offbeat look at one of history’s most notorious assassinations. After leading the Union to victory over the Confederacy, in 1865 President Lincoln was struck down by John Wilkes Booth. Just as “Honest Abe” loomed like a colossus over the nation during the Civil War, so in death it seems that he continues to cast a long shadow over the White House, where rumors of his ghostly presence have echoed through the decades.
