Lincoln Museum, Washington
Ford's Theatre is the historic theatre used for various stage performances beginning in the 1860s. It is also the site of the assasination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865.
After being shot, the fatally wounded president was carried across the street to the Peterson House where he died the next morning. Still decorated in the style of the day and with various exhibits and artefacts from the time, The Lincoln Museum's permanent exhibit depicts the role Lincoln played in America's pioneering presidency and the legacy he has imparted.
