Throughout his life, Lincoln consulted oracles, and at age 22, he was told by a seer that he would become president of the United States. In his dreams, he foresaw his own sudden death.
Trauma and heartbreak opened the psychic door for this otherworldly president, whose precognitive dreams, evil omens, and trance-like states are carefully documented in this bold yet poignant chronicle of tragic beginnings, White House séances, and paranormal eruptions of the Civil War era.
Aided by the deathbed memoir of his favorite medium, Lincoln's remarkable psychic experiences come to life with communications from beyond, ESP, true and false prophecies, and thumbnail sketches of the most influential spiritualists in his orbit. Surveying clairvoyant incidents in Lincoln's life from cradle to grave, the book also examines the Emancipation Proclamation and the unseen powers that moved pen to hand for its historic signing.
