visiting history

Reading the book "Manhunt -- The 12 Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer" made me want to visit Ford's Theatre during my recent trip to Washington. I wonder how I would look if I trimmed my beard the same way as the men who tracked down John Wilkes Booth.

After the shooting, they brought Abraham Lincoln across the street to Petersen House, which is easy to spot right next to the Lincoln Souvenir Outlet. I didn't see many Lincoln souvenirs but I did find some tacky First Lady bobbleheads.

Thanks for bringing a part of history to those of us who haven't been able to get there and see it.
