On this day in 1865, President Abraham Lincoln attended Ford’s Theater to see a production of Our American Cousin. While Lincoln was watching the play, he was assassinated by southern sympathizer, John Wilkes Booth.

Now, the irony. . . . several weeks prior to this, Lincoln had a dream. In his dream, he was walking through the White House and heard weeping. He asked someone what happened and they told him that the president had been assassinated. In the dream, Lincoln saw a coffin in the East Room. His dream came to pass on that fateful night.
