First up is the Petersen House. This is across the street from Ford's Theater, and is the private home where President Lincoln was taken after he was shot. A replica of the bed in which he died is on display, and it's heartbreaking--it's such a small bed, you can imagine how they had to fold this tall man into it. The tour doesn't take very long, and you should definitely check it out after you leave Ford's Theater.
|The bed was too short, so they had to lay him at an angle to fit.|

That's it for today! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for our celebration of the letter Q!
