Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in 1865, but some have said that his spirit has lingered on—and not just figuratively, either. Over the years, there have been multiple purported sightings of his ghost—at the White House and Ford’s Theatre where he was assassinated, at Fort Monroe in Virginia, and at his tomb in Springfield, Ill.
The epicenter for Lincoln sightings, not surprisingly, is the White House, where he lived during the last four tumultuous years of his life. The 16th President’s apparition reportedly has been seen at the White House by a long list of people, including British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands to President Reagan’s daughter Maureen. Read on to discover the most famous Lincoln sightings and the complete Story of Lincolns Ghost.
