Last Words President Lincoln Heard

May 31, 2017

This is for history nerds.

The last words Lincoln heard were from the stage of Ford’s Theater during the play “Our American Cousin.” At 10:15 P.M., actor Harry Hawk, playing the title role, stood alone on stage and aimed a laugh-out-loud line at a female character who had just exited: “Don’t know the manners of good society, eh? Well I guess I know enough to turn you inside out, old gal — you sockdologizing old man-trap!”

Then history was changed with this gun.
