Are you going to the play "Our American Cousin" tonight Mr. Lincoln?
I agree. The actors are wonderful.
This is such a nice play
CHAOS IN THE THEATER
Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, will attend the play "Our American Cousin" at the Ford's theater in Washington D.C. Little did they know that Booth had been scheming to kill Lincoln for months. Unfortunately, little did they know, the night of April 14, Booth would carry out his plan.
John Wilkins Booth sneaks into the room where Lincoln is watching the play. Luckily for him, Lincolns guard decided to go to the bar next door, leaving Lincoln unprotected. Booth takes his aim, and shoots at Lincoln
Booth shot Lincoln in the back of his head. He then leaped over the balcony and shouted a few words on stage, then escaped on horse-back with a broken leg. Mary Todd Lincolns scream could be heard throughout the theater. At first, people thought it was a part of the play, but quickly realized that something was very wrong. Lincoln died on April 15, at 7:22 in the morning.
