Learn about Lincoln’s assassination from two men who were there. This 35-minute presentation at Ford’s Theatre explores the key facts of the Lincoln assassination while capturing the emotions of that fateful night. 1860s actor Harry Hawk and Ford’s Theatre co-owner Harry Ford revisit the events of April 14, 1865. As they reconstruct the sequence of events at the theatre on the day of the Lincoln assassination, they grapple with the question: Could John Wilkes Booth have been stopped? One Destiny celebrated its 800th performance in April 2015.
