Historical Premonitions

Upon looking into a mirror a man saw a double image of himself. Immediately the man knew his career which could be coming to an end, would actually endure. He also knew that despite the continuation, it would be cut short. Another night in a dream this same man found himself following the sounds of mourners. He recalled the clarity of the weeping and sobbing and the inability to see their faces. The sound led him to the White House where he found guards stationed near a casket. He gazed in to find the face of the corpse covered. He questioned, "Who is dead in the White House?" The answer, "The President. He was killed by an assassin." Abraham Lincoln's intuition was right on. His close friend and biographer, Ward H. Lamon, reported these experiences long before Lincoln's death. When questioned, Lincoln confirmed Lamon reports and expressed his belief in the paranormal.

A few days after General Ulysses S. Grant accepted the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, Washington was celebrating. Attending the festivities were Grant and his wife, Julia. The morning after a reception to honor Grant, Julia woke with an uneasy feeling and a strong desire to return to their home. Grant, who was committed to attend various functions, gave into his wife's urgings and left Washington that evening. The Grants were to sit next to the Lincolns at the Ford Theatre that night. When they reached Philadelphia they got word of the President's assassination. They also learned that Grant was listed as one of John Wilkes Booth's victims.

Many well known people have had premonitions, including; Giuseppe Garibaldi, Charles Camille Saint-Saens, Robert Shuman and Thomas Edison. Samuel Clemens, Mark Twain, dreamt about the death of his brother, Henry. In his dream his younger brother was lying in a metal coffin with flowers placed on his chest. Sam mentioned the dream to his sister but told his brother nothing. Instead he urged his brother, who also worked on the steamboats, to be careful and advised, "Don’t lose your head." Assigned to different boats they parted company. Later Sam learned that the boilers in Henry's boat blew-up. His brother was one of the casualties.

Winston Churchill often followed his gut. One evening when air raid sirens had become the norm, Churchill had a premonition, interrupted dinner, and sent his kitchen staff down to the bomb shelter. A few minutes later a bomb struck the home demolishing the kitchen.

On another occasion, upon completing a visit to an antiaircraft battery Churchill proceeded to his staff car. The door opened for him to take his usual seat. Churchill walked passed the opened door and sat on the other side of the car. While driving a few blocks from the battery station a bomb landed near the car. The power of the blast lifted the car precariously on two wheels yet, no one was hurt. It was believed that it was the placement of Churchill's girth which prevented the car from flipping over.

When Churchill was questioned as to why he sat on the other side of the car, Churchill said, "...Something said 'Stop!' before I reached the car door held open for me. It then appeared to me that I was told I was meant to open the door on the other side and sit there-and that's what I did."
