It is a triumph!q - Jay Winik, author of the New York Times best-selling book April 1865. Ford's Theatre in downtown Washington, DC, is best known as the scene of Pres. Abraham Lincoln's assassination on April 14, 1865. It is among the oldest and most visited sites of national tragedy in the United States. First constructed in 1833 as a Baptist church, the property was acquired by John T. Ford and converted into a theater in 1861. Presenting almost 500 performances before the assassination, Ford afterward sold the building to the federal government. A century later, the National Park Service reconstructed the theater, and Ford's Theatre Society began presenting live performances there in 1968. Since then, the two organizations have partnered to offer more than 650, 000 annual visitors an array of quality programming about Lincoln's presidency and legacy. Today, patrons can explore the Tenth Street qcampus, q consisting of the theater, interactive museum galleries, the house where Lincoln died, and the Center for Education and Leadership.Brian Anderson for the Forda#39;s Theatre Society ... of Congress Control Number: 2013946347 For all general information, please contact Arcadia Publishing: Telephone 843-853-2070 Fax ... customer service and orders: Toll-Free 1-888- 313-2665 Visit us on the Internet at www.arcadiapublishing.com This book is dedicated toanbsp;...
