Associated Press Article on Lincoln's Death

Without the lens of history to see Lincoln's shooting, this is a very interesting article written by Associated Press reporter Lawrence Gobright.  The article is quite graphic, mentioning Mrs. Lincoln's screams and the "brain oozing out."  I love using primary documents through the course of history and with the 150th anniversary of the assassination, this is certainly a good one to read.

Below is a fascinating interview in 1956 with an eyewitness of the shooting.
