Andrew Jackson Davis was a 19th century clairvoyant who predicted the most incredible scientific discoveries. In 1846 he predicted the discovery of the planets Neptune and Pluto, described the composition of Neptune, the surface features of Venus, the Theory of Evolution 9 years before Darwin, the Big Bang Theory, he also described clairvoyantly what happens when a person dies and their soul leaves their body, and a description of the hereafter. He was also a Medical Doctor and could diagnosis a person by just looking at their aura. Edgar Cayce 100 years later said AJD did what he was doing a century before. I believe I have documented that he knew Abraham Lincoln. In fact when Lincoln ran for re-election in 1864, he was accused of having a spiritualist, Andrew Jackson Davis, as his advisor.

PHOTOS OF LINCOLN ABOVE:

Center: First known photo of Lincoln taken by Nicholas Shepherd in 1846.
Right: Taken by Anthony Berger in 1864.


The photo to the right is a rare Lincoln assassination relic that was once owned by Dr. Charles Leale of New York. He was the first physician to attend to Lincoln after he was shot at Ford's Theatre. Dr. Leale was an army physician who went to Ford's Theatre that night since he heard Lincoln was going to attend the performance. He always admired Lincoln so he thought this would be his chance to see him in person. Little did he know that he would be the chief doctor attending him after he was shot. This relic was obtained by Dr. Leale that night and research shows that it eventually wound up in the possession of the John Hay estate. John Hay was one of Lincoln's private secretaries. It eventually found its way to the collection of Dr. Robert White, the famous Kennedy collector. The research used in determining what this relic is will be discussed in the articles section.  
 

Lincoln with the famous New York detective Allan Pinkerton (to the left of Lincoln). Pinkerton was instrumental in preventing an assassination plot against Lincoln in 1861 on his way to Washington, DC to take office. Pinkerton and his detectives also spied in the south for Lincoln during the Civil War and gave him information on confederate troop strength and locations. Pinkerton received much criticism after the Civil War for giving Lincoln exaggerated troop strengths of the confederate army.


The picture to the right is a coin pouch that was owned by Lincoln when he lived at New Salem, IL. He gave it to his very good friend Hezekiah Stout as a gift of friendship. It was passed down through the Stout families for generations and it is currently in the collection of Dr. John DeSalvo. Very few items if any owned by Lincoln from this New Salem period have survived today. This is one of the few that have. Coin pouches were common in those times to hold not only coins but small items that may fall out of ones pocket. They came in a variety of styles and shapes.
 

The Presidential box at Ford's Theater where Lincoln was shot on Apri 14, 1865. Lincoln was seated in the box on the right side. This section was usually separated into two booths that had a partition in the center but it was removed to make one large box to accommodate Lincoln and his guests that night at the theater. This photo was taken the next day after the assassination by Mathew Brady and shows  exactly how the President's Box was decorated that night with a picture of  George Washington and the American flag. After Lincoln was shot, John Wilkes Booth made his getaway by jumping from this box to the stage floor. He caught his foot in the flag and landed on his ankle. He broke a bone and this was a constant torment to him during his escape.
