Quite a few things in common. How true is it, i don't know. I think at least a fair amount of it must be true.

So this post really has no point, i just thought it was an interesting read.

Wrong, the Y in Kennedy is a vowel.

Examined more closely by snopes: http://www.snopes.com/history/american/lincoln-kennedy.asp

The coincidences are easily explained as the simple product of mere chance. It's not difficult to find patterns and similarities between any two marginally-related sets of data, and coincidences similar in number and kind can be (and have been) found between many different pairs of Presidents. Our tendency to seek out patterns wherever we can stems from our desire to make sense of our world; to maintain a feeling that our universe is orderly and can be understood. In this specific case two of our most beloved Presidents were murdered for reasons that make little or no sense to many of us, and by finding patterns in their deaths we also hope to find a larger cosmic "something" that seemingly provides some reassuring (if indefinite) rhyme or reason why these great men were prematurely snatched from our mortal sphere.


TL;DR Pure coincidences

Yes it is. It makes a vowel sound, not a 'yuh' sound.

Lincoln didn't have war thrust upon him, Lincoln started a war because he didn't want to lose the natural resources of the southern states or let the southern states trade internationally.

He wanted to preserve the Union so both North and South could survive. South Carolina started it by bitching out of the Union. There really wasn't a choice, IMO.
