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.
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.
