Video Tour: Silent Witnesses Exhibition

Join Ford’s Theatre Society resident curator Tracy Avant as she walks through Silent Witnesses, a limited-engagement display at the Center for Education and Leadership on the Ford’s Theatre campus. This hallmark exhibition 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. Returning these items together to Tenth Street help tell the story of Lincoln’s final moments.

Silent Witnesses will be displayed in the Center for Education and Leadership (at the Ford’s Theatre Campus) through May 29, 2015 only! We hope you’ll plan a visit to see the exhibition for yourself in Washington!
