Excerpt from the back: Ford's Theatre was plunged into U.S. history on the evening of April 14, 1865, when President Abraham Lincoln was shot while viewing a performance there. Only five days earlier, on April 9th, General Lee had surrendered at Appomattox Court House, VA, and Lincoln spent the week preparing his postwar reconstruction plans. He looked forward to attending the performance of our American Cousin at Ford's Theatre later that week. The theater gave him needed relief from the burdens of the Presidency. At approximately 10:15 pm on April 14, almost two hours after the performance had started, history took a deadly turn when John Wilkes Booth entered the Presidential box and shot Lincoln.

Ford's Theatre is a National Historic Site.
