Martin Luther King, Jr. & Abraham Lincoln: The Hidden Connection
Martin Luther King & Abraham Lincoln
The Hidden Connection
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln are linked together in history for both were assassinated while addressing the endemic racism of the United States of America.
Both are known for their great oratory skills and their speeches rank among the greatest given.
Both men along with the Kennedys form the pantheon of heroes for Liberals, the American progressive movement and those around the world who draw inspiration from what they consider to be the “best in America”.
While there is “underground” information on the similarities between Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy, there is little, if any on comparisons between Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln from a non-establishment perspective.
Most of the similarities between Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln examined in this article, are governed by the number “4” and this would include the fourth month of the year-April.
Martin Luther King ‘s famous and grossly misunderstood “I Have A Dream” speech was made before the Lincoln Memorial, as part of the “March On Washington” demonstration, organized by the then leading Civil Rights organizations , in Washington, D.C. on August 28, 1963. In his speech, he alluded to Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address by saying: “Five score years ago..”.
The speech was given four months before the 100 year anniversary of the Gettysburg address; and five days before the 103rd anniversary of Robert Lee’s surrender at Appottamox.
*Note that the speech was 4 months short of coinciding with the 100th year anniversary of the Gettysburg Address and with Lee’s surrender 103rd anniversary-103, equals: 1+0+3=4.
Both died in the month of April (the fourth month of the year) before Easter. Lincoln died on Good Friday just before the Easter holiday; King was killed approximately two weeks (actually ten days) before the Easter holiday on April 14, 1968.
It was actually on April 14, 1865, Lincoln was shot by Booth. On April 15, 1865, Lincoln died from complications caused by the gunshots.
There are more interesting connections in the lives of Dr. King and Abraham Lincoln:
Both King and Lincoln were the second child in family birth order with both having two brothers and one sister.
Both King and Lincoln had four children. Of Lincoln’s four children, two died before they were teenagers.
April 4, 1968 – MLK assassinated
April 4, 1853- Lincoln’s fourth son Thomas “Tad” Lincoln was born.
Both men who are considered to be the assassins of MLK and Abraham Lincoln died in April:
James Earl Ray lived from March 10, 1928 to April 23, 1998.
John Wilkes Booth lived from May 10, 1838 to April 26, 1865.
Martin Luther King was killed on April 4, 1968 and Abraham Lincoln on April 15, 1865.
When we add Lincoln’s date of death we get: 4+1+5+1+8+6+5=30=3+0=3. But when we add in the following manner: 4+15+1+8+6+5=39=3+9=12=1+2=3
King was 39 years old when he was assassinated.
There are questions about the true culprits of the assassinations of both Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln.
James Earl Ray, in the view of many could not have carried out the murder of King by himself, if he was the killer. There are others, including the King family, who maintain that King’s assassination was part of an overall conspiracy involving elements of the U.S. government.
Booth supposedly was killed, while being pursued by Union soldiers who set the
barn (which he was using as a hideaway on fire) and subsequently fatally shot him.
There are theories that Booth escaped and was not killed.
James Earl Ray was born in Illinois, where Lincoln served as a United States Congressman from March 4, 1847 to March 3, 1849. Remember Ray was born in March!
Ray died in Tennessee the birth place of then Vice President Andrew Johnson, who became president after Lincoln’s assassination.

John Wilkes Booth lived from (May 10, 1838 – April 26, 1865)
