Fords Theater

Our last day in Washington we visited the National Archives – no pictures allowed – and Fords Theater.  We toured the museum, & then went into the actual theater, where we saw the box where Abraham Lincoln was sitting when he was shot.  Here is Mallory in the museum.get-attachment

Across the street from Fords Theater was the Peterson House, where President Lincoln actually died.  And adjacent to that was another museum and a Center for Education or something like that.  Inside that Center was a stack of books about Abraham Lincoln.  I think the sign said it contained like half of the 15,000 books who had been written about him.  I know the stack was over three stories high.  This is looking down on it as we started down the stairs.  Impressive, to say the least.  A great way to end our visit to our Nation’s Capital.get-attachment
