A night at the theater

Lincoln
149 years ago this evening, Abraham Lincoln went to see a play at Ford’s Theater in Washington city (as they called it then).

Many years later, I went to see a play in Ford’s Theater. The box that Lincoln sat in that night is still on display, and there was a feeling of sadness in my heart as I saw it.

Lincoln was a great man, and we’re all better off that he once walked the earth. And the anniversary of his shooting is as good a time as any to realize this.
