Ford's Theatre - Traveling to DC Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Ford’s Theatre in Washington D.C.A must see in D.C.!!!http://washingtondctours.onboardtours.com
  • 2.  Ifyou’re visiting D.C. this season, escape the political climate and cool off inside of Ford’s Theatre. Travel back to a time of Civil War and peace at last with a focus on President Lincoln. Originally a place of worship for the First Baptist Church, John T. Ford acquired the abandoned building on 10th street in 1861.
  • 3.  Even though the theatre burned down after a successful first year of theatrical service, it was rebuilt shortly after and continued to thrive. It was such a success that before his unfortunate demise, Lincoln had visited the theatre eleven times previous to his last attendance.
  • 4.  Sadly after booth took his life, the theatre then closed and remained so for one hundred years. It was then obtained by the Ford’s Theatre Society and National Park Services and reopened to illuminate the civil war, Washington, D.C. and Lincoln’s legacy. You can now visit the fully functioning theatre and additional Ford’s Theatre Museum. So, while you’re visiting a monumental area, be sure to pay tribute to the 16th President of The United States of America!
