How Lincoln's Box Looked From The Audience at Ford's Theater

How Lincoln’s Box Looked From The Audience at Ford’s Theater

When new clients ask me, “What is your best presentation?” This is the one I point them to. I have been fascinated by the assassination of Abraham Lincoln for as long as I can remember. Unlike so many ridiculous conspiracy theories that float around the Internet, the murder of Pres. Lincoln was the result of the terrorist conspiracy. You will be amazed by the personalities, the strange coincidences, the tragic mistakes and the far reaching consequences of this successful act of terrorism.

Drawing on my skills as a historian and as a dramatist, the dramatic events coming to clear, unforgettable focus. You as become swept up in the tide of events that would change the nation forever.  This fascinating presentation has earned standing ovations across the USA And I am proud to present it to you.

 I promise this will be a presentation you will long remember!

 A Bonus!

Click here for a real treat. On the old game show, “I’ve Got a Secret” the last known living witness to the assassination of Pres. Lincoln by the terrorist, John Wilkes Booth, made an appearance on February 9, 1956. While his memory of the events is not reliable, I still think it is an amazing thing to be able to see!
