A 19th century American novelist’s work is attracting more notice in 2017 than it did in his day because of striking similarities to current events.
Ingersoll Lockwood, an attorney and political writer, wrote several books, including children’s stories featuring the name “Baron Trump” . . .
Ironically, Lockwood’s final novel arrived in 1896, titled “The Last President.”
The story begins with a scene from a panicked New York City in early November, describing a “state of uproar” after the election of a widely controversial outsider candidate.
“The entire East Side is in a state of uproar,” police officers shouted through the streets, warning city folk to stay indoors for the night. “Mobs of vast size are organizing under the lead of anarchists and socialists, and threaten to plunder and despoil the houses of the rich who have wronged and oppressed them for so many years.” (Read more from “Are These Stories From 1896 Actually Prophecies About Trump?” HERE)
