Assassination of President Lincoln

Toss your history books, ’cause the best way to learn about America’s 16th president is through the eyes of the man who assassinated him. The Original John Wilkes Booth Escape Route Tour takes you from Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., where Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865, to Garrett’s Farm near Port Royal, Va., where a furtive Booth was eventually caught and killed. True, it may be a bit morbid, but this manhunt-inspired bus tour following Booth’s escape route through southern Maryland is wildly popular. Contact the Surratt House Museum in Clinton, Md. to get on the mailing list for upcoming tours.
