In Ghostly’s nineteenth episode, Pat
and Rebecca explore President Abraham Lincoln and the stories of his ghost. The
sixteenth president of the United States had an interesting life, but one that
was also filled with sadness. Since his untimely death, stories of his ghost have
been told by many, including presidents and heads of state.
