Before Abraham Lincoln's Assassination, His Wife Heard His Last Words

It’s the evening of April 14, 1865, and President Abraham Lincoln is sitting with his beloved wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, in their private box at Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C. The happy couple are engrossed in the performance of Our American Cousin that’s playing out below them – but fate has other plans. At 10:15 p.m., you see, a gunman named John Wilkes Booth creeps up behind the president and fires off a round into the back of his skull. Of course, this much most of us know, but it’s the true nature of the Lincoln’s final words to Mary that has been fiercely contested throughout the years.
