Ford's Theatre


Go inside the historic theatre and learn about the night of the assassination. On the night of April 14, 1865, actor and Confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth sneaked into the Presidential Box and shot President Abraham Lincoln. Today, the theatre looks very much the way it did that fateful night. The President's Box is decorated with an American flag and a portrait of President George Washington, just as it was in 1865. In the theatre, we offer three types of programming exploring the events of the assassination.
