Abraham Lincoln

Lincolnís son

Years after his father had been killed by John Wilkes Booth; Robert Todd Lincoln, the sole surviving son of Abraham and Mary Lincoln was on a railroad platform trying to board a train when suddenly it lurched forward tossing Robert onto the tracks.  The train surely would have killed Mr. Lincoln but at the last possible moment, a man reached down grabbing him by the neck and pulled him to safety.  The train was so close to Lincoln that it actually torn a part of Lincoln ís boot off.

Robert looked up to thank the man and recognized his face immediately.  It was Edwin Booth, the brother of the man who had killed his father.  Lincoln thanked him by name.
