Former UK Prime Minister, Winston Churchill refused to sleep in the White House while visiting the USA after a trip he made there during World War II. According to Churchill, he stepped out of the bathroom nude with only his cigar for company and made his way into an adjacent room.
There he saw Abraham Lincoln, a man who had been dead for 80 years standing by the fireplace. Churchill then supposedly said, “Mr President, you seem to have me at a disadvantage!” The ghostly vision then apparently chuckled before vanishing.
Winston Churchill had spent the evening in the bath drinking whiskey.
