    Description

    Ford's Theater Admission Ticket From Night of Lincoln's Assassination Civil War Union Major J. Franklin Fitts of the 114th Regiment New York Volunteers kept a general admission ticket from Ford's Theatre on the night of President Abraham Lincoln's assassination. The nicely designed ticket pictures the theatre with the name, "Ford's," flying on flags above the roof. Fitts' handwritten note on an accompanying envelope gives the item's provenance.
