    Fondest memory: Oops! Not a very good photo... Anyhow, you're supposed to see the events happening at Ford's Theater (as chronicled below in the pic) that led to President Abraham Lincoln's assassination on the fateful night of April 14, 1865.

    Favorite thing: visit FORD'S THEATER, located right here at: 511,10th Street NW.

    For history buffs like myself, this is a momentous occasion indeed. You see, on the night of April 14, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was amongst the audience here at Ford's Theater watching a performance when actor John Wilkes Booth fatally shot the great leader. * Sniff *

    The photo below shows me standing just outside the house where President Lincoln was carried to immediately after the shooting. Sadly, he passed away shortly after inside this house on April 15, 1865. :-(

    This must surely be one of the saddest days in American history! * Sniff, Sniff *

    Favorite thing: visit Ford's Theatre where President Lincoln was shot and Petersen House where he died. As a student of history I found it fascinating.
    The brochure is very informative.

    Fondest memory: The general atmosphere.
    A thing I will never forget is Arlington Cemetery. It brought tears to my eyes, even though I am an Australian. The F.D.R. memorial was wonderful & inspirational. The brochure was informative,
