Lincoln joined Lamon in the entrance hall. “The hat fell off in the road, when the
horse shied.” “No, sir,” said Lamon, grimly. “It didn't fall off.” Lamon held up the
hat. From left side to right side, three inches above the brim, a bullet had made its
way. “That bullet just barely missed you.” “Take the hat away, Ward,” said Lincoln
in a low voice. “Show it to no one. Tell no one.” “On one condition, sir. That you
will never again ride out here, or anywhere else, without guards.” Lincoln nodded

One afternoon in 1786, Samuel Lincoln and his sons went out to work in their
field. Suddenly, a rifle shot rang out from the nearby woods. Lincoln collapsed,
shot and killed by the bullet. The three boys spotted American Indians in the trees
. Immediately, Mordecai ran to a nearby cabin, and Josiah sprinted toward the
local fort to get help. Six-year-old Thomas, or Tom, shocked and terrified, stood
staring at his father's bloody body, unable to move. When he looked up, his eyes
met those ...

(D) Although the burlesque style must undoubtedly be charged to Lamon, John
W. Nichols (q.v.) recalled just such an incident, declaring that Lincoln's hat was
later found with a bullet hole in it. However, his testimony, though unclear, seems
to place the adventure in August 1864, rather than August 1862. 16. Lamon
quotes Lincoln as saying in August 1862: I am determined to borrow no trouble. I
believe in the right and that it will ultimately prevail, and I believe it is the
inalienable right ...

Whereas Lincoln's and Giffords' injuries have much in common, they also differ in
several important aspects. Lincoln was shot with a .44-caliber low-velocity bullet,
Giffords with a 9mm high-velocity bullet. Lincoln's bullet didn't exit the skull;
Giffords' did. Most important, Giffords' bullet traveled only through the left side of
her brain. Lincoln's is thought to have done so as well; however, Leale's
description of a bulging right eye suggests that the bullet actually crossed the
midline into the ...

George Atzerodt was to kill Vice President Andrew Johnson, Lewis Paine was to
kill Secretary of State William Seward, and John Wilkes Booth himself would put
a bullet in President Lincoln's head. To add to the dramatic effect, Booth decreed
that all three murders should take place at exactly 10:15 p.m. (though Booth
ended up firing his fatal shot two minutes early). Once they had accomplished
their deed, the plan called for the men to escape to the South, where they
believed they ...

Malone could sympathize. Caught between two guns was not a good place to be.
“I'm going to count to three,” he said, “You better have that gun lowered by the
time I finish.” “Don't be an idiot, Malone. My men will be here any second.” “One.”
He saw Kirk's trigger finger tighten. The dilemma was clear. He had to either
shoot Luke in the head, which meant Malone would shoot him, or swing the gun
around and fire across the store. But he'd never make that shot before a bullet
from the ...

Instead of killing Lincoln, the bullet puts the president into a coma for sixty-eight years, his body remaining limber and ageless. When he awakens in 1933, Abe Lincoln is a man out of time, a revered icon...and a political pariah.
