Bonnie & Abe at the 1965 NYC World's Fair

 Posted on Facebook 8 years ago:

Today is Abe Lincoln's birthday. This is a picture of my younger sister Bonnie posing with President Lincoln at the 1965 NY World's Fair.
In Today's Trivia On-Line- Page a Day Calendar it told me it was Lincoln's Birthday today also this:
In an odd coincidence, it was Edwin Booth, the brother of John Wilkes Booth, Abraham Lincoln's assassin. Robert was on a train platform in New Jersey when a crowd of passengers knocked him into the path of a train. Edwin Booth reached out his hand and pulled Lincoln back to safety. Robert recognized Edwin, as he was a well-known actor. It wasn't until a few months later that John Wilkes Booth shot and killed Abraham Lincoln.

Bonnie died in 2022.
