Experiencing History: Reliving the End of the Civil War, Moment by Moment: 4/14 part 1

The idea of dressing up and having an evening out has excited you all day and now it’s finally time to prepare for the show. Our American Cousin will be playing tonight, but what you’re most interested in is the chance to see President Lincoln. Rumor has it that he is to attend. You hope, at the very least, to have a seat that can easily see into the Presidential Box.

It’s a misty and foggy sort of night when you finally leave for the Theatre. You can’t help but pick up on the eerie feeling that seems to hang around in the air. With a deep breath, you shove those thoughts aside. With the news of Lee’s surrender, the papers promise only good things for the our country…
