Last Words President Lincoln Heard

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.
