While we like to say that there are no coincidences, there are a handful  of baffling events in the annals of history that truly make one wonder.

YouTube user Dark5 has put together a collection of eerie stories from the past which involve strange cases of serendipity.

Perhaps the most jaw-dropping tale featured in the video centers around a man named Wilmer McLean, who's home served as the site for both the start and end of the Civil War.
