One of the few photographs of Lincoln in the White House, taken by Matthew Brady, 1864. Not until after renovation of the White House, during the Truman administration, did this room become so exclusively associated with Lincoln.
Cases including the contents of Abraham Lincoln’s pockets, Top Hat and Greatcoat from the night of the assassination. Items now on display as part of “Silent Witnesses” at the Ford’s Theatre Center for Education and Leadership. Photo by Gary Erskine.
