Fact of the Day: Robert Todd Lincoln Coincidence

Abraham Lincoln's son Robert Todd Lincoln was either nearby or at the scene of three presidential assassinations including his father's, McKinley's, and Garfield's. After awhile Robert Todd Lincoln believed himself to be cursed on the matter and refused a presidential event by saying "No, I'm not going, and they'd better not ask me, because there is a certain fatality about presidential functions when I am present." on the matter.
