The Theatre Event That Changed History: Lincoln’s Assassination At Ford’s Theatre

About this episode

April 14, 1865, was “surely one of Abraham Lincoln’s happiest days” but ended with an assassin’s bullet in his brain. Calling on reports from primary documents and other sources, Candy leads Ashley through the night that Booth and his co-conspirators put their murderous plot into action… a plot that called not only for the death of a President but also two other senior members of the executive branch. Listen to episode 18 to find out what you missed in history class. 

Special thank you to Erik Archilla, co-creator of “1865” for his listener testimonial! (Links to his podcast at the bottom of the page!)
