Ford's Theatre National Historic Site

Ford's Theatre is where John Wilkes-Booth mortally wounded Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865 - just five days after the surrender of the South in the Civil War.  Visitors to Ford's Theatre will also want to visit Petersen's boarding house, where Lincoln was carried after he was shot and subsequently died.   Both are National Historic sites.
