Being A Tourist

A couple weeks ago, I went on a two hour Lincoln Assassination tour in DC. It was really fun playing the tourist. The tour started on the north side of the White House and then we wandered through the streets following the events of that fateful day until ending up at the Ford Theater and hearing about the last moments of Abraham Lincoln. It was really cool.

The picture is of me and some friends from church who all went on the tour as well. It was really cool seeing the actual box that Lincoln sat in (just above our heads with all the drapes) and standing on the stage where John Wilkes Booth jumped and made his escape. Apparently there is a bus tour that will take you from the Ford's theater along his escape route to the farm where he was eventually found.
