Tons of eating places. We ate at Asia Nine which was around the corner. Very reasonable: appetizer [shared], wine, 2 entrees - including tip $55.00. Excellent food, excellent ambience & cloth covered tables.

Description

Why did a handsome, popular, theatre idol murder President Lincoln? Was Booth’s act a result of a Confederate conspiracy? Was he a Confederate spy acting as part of a larger plot or simply a lone gunman? Was he a player in an internal Union scheme? Was a White House spy involved? Many theories have been proposed and discarded. Examine the controversies surrounding Lincoln’s assassination anew — at the very scene of the crime — during this eye-opening session.

Join renowned experts Michael Kauffman, author of American Brutus; Frank J. Williams, Chairman of The Lincoln Forum and Chief Justice (ret) of Rhode Island; and H. Donald Winkler, author of Stealing Secrets and Lincoln and Booth: More Light on the Conspiracy, for a rounded view of the conspiracies and realities of the horrific events of April 14th, 1865.

Presented in collaboration by the National Park Service, Ford’s Theatre Society, Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site; The International Spy Museum; and the Willard InterContinental Hotel.
