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.

Questions explored in this episode: What was Lincoln’s life like growing up? What events led to his depression? Does his spirit haunt the White House? Can his ghost be seen on a walk in Springfield, IL? What famous people have seen Lincoln’s ghost? Does his forlorn specter show itself to those who lead the country?
