The author team that wrote the upcoming Skyhorse title Edison vs. Tesla, as well as The Haunting of the Presidents and other titles about the weird, the supernatural, and the unexplained, turn their attention to the oval office for a unique view at the paranormal in America and more specifically – what America’s Presidents – from Washington to Obama – have witnessed and believed.
• Most of us know that George Washington was heavily involved with the secret society, the Freemasons. But how many of us know about George Washington’s UFO sighting during the terrible winter at Valley Forge, and how the experience guided his future?
• Lincoln had a recurring dream about his death. His ghost still wanders the White House and pointed out the building’s structural defects to President Eisenhower
• Mrs. Franklin Pierce had a séance in the White House in 1854, to summon the spirit of their eleven-year-old son Bennie, who had died tragically in a train crash
• JFK was warned by many psychics who predicted his demise
The Presidents and the Paranormal is an oft-overlooked glimpse at history that will appeal to historians as well as advocates of the paranormal.
