Bring the story of President Lincoln’s assassination and the world of Civil War Washington into your classrooms through our distance-learning program.
Using live video-conferencing, travel back in time to investigate the Lincoln assassination. Connect with our staff or a National Park Service Ranger to ask questions about Lincoln’s life and legacy.
We use YouTube and Twitter to make participating in live-streaming events easy and accessible. Taking part in our interactive learning programs not only brings Ford’s into your classroom, it also connects your class with other students all over the country.
As Detective McDevitt’s deputies, students will revisit sites and reexamine clues from April 14, 1865. This live program uses primary source images and interaction with historical characters. Available year-round.
A Robust Online Presence
We extend learning opportunities to classrooms around the country that are unable to visit the historic site or museum in person.
