February 21, John Quincy Adams, Malcolm X

Any connections?  Any correlations?

On February 21, 1848, Rep. John Quincy Adams suffered a stroke on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.  He died on February 23.  Adams is the only ex-president to have returned to elective office after his presidency.

On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated at a rally in New York City.

    the history geek in me says that Andrew Johnson returned to the US Senate after leaving office… but he was elected to the office by the TN State house, not by direct election.

    That’s a much brighter note. Heck, I can even just refer to past posts! Thanks.

    On a brighter note, Barbara Jordon’s birthday is today, too.
