Yes, It Was Ford's Theater

Greetings Cosmic Americans!

Last weekend was the anniversary of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. To see if people were paying attention, I posted this image on all of my usual media outlets: Facebook 1, Facebook 2, and Twitter, etc.

I promised that the first person to identify the building would get a shout out on Cosmic America - so congratulations Raina Gabrielle Kellerman. There were a lot of correct identifications, but yours was the first. is Ford's theater. The building stands still. If you are ever in the D.C. area, it would be worth the price of admission to check it out.



  1. Of course, the price of admission is $0.00...

  2. I just actually came back from Ford's theater a week back. It is still free admission and the place is beautiful. It is ashame that nothing original is there except the outdoor facade (of course in excluding the downstairs exhibit). We were lucky enough as the ranger told us to get a "rare" view of Booth's view of Lincoln. Apparently the ranger told us it is always closed. That was really cool to see. Booth's derringer was there as well- must say I did not expect that though it does make sense
