The assassination of President Lincoln is one of the most, if not the most, tragic event in the history of Washington. Lincoln was shot at Ford’s Theatre in the evening of April 14th, 1865. A massive hunt for the conspirators ensued in the days following the assassination and the War Department, headed by Edwin Stanton, printed up and distributed the wanted poster below to aid in capturing the murderers.
