Silent Witnesses: Artifacts of the Lincoln Assassination
March 23-May 25, 2015
Ford’s Theatre commemorates the assassination and death of Abraham Lincoln with a hallmark exhibit that reunites—for the first time since April 1865—an extraordinary collection of artifacts that were in the Theatre or carried by Abraham Lincoln the night of his assassination. Included within the exhibition are the contents of Lincoln’s pockets, his great coat, his top hat, and much  more.
