Ford’s Theatre, Washington DC…like a travel back in time.

Ford’s Theatre was an amazing experience to tour – to see where Lincoln was sitting when he was shot.

You must get tickets at the box office, but entry is free. How he died is just sad and you feel it when they tell the story of that night. In the actual theater, you can peer at the Presidential Box where the President and his wife and guests were seated – where no one is allowed to sit anymore.  There is also a museum in the theater, with interesting pieces like the gun used to shoot Lincoln, Booth’s diary, knife and boot, etc. I thought Lincoln died in Ford’s Theater, but he actually died in a house across the street called the Peterson House. The ticket you get at Ford’s Theatre is the same one you use to visit the Peterson House, but I didn’t have time to go in there.

This FREE tour and site is well organized. It was awesome to feel like a tourist traveling back in time. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
