1865 Abraham Lincoln Assassination Stereoview photograph of Presidential Balcony Box at Ford's Theatre where John Wilkes Booth committed the murder. Photo taken 2 days after the assassination with the Box remaining exactly as it appeared after Booth's leap to the stage below. The assassin's spur caught either the picture of George Washington seen between the two boxes or the American Flag that was draped as bunting below the opening of the Presidential Box (note torn piece of flag).

Dr. Mary Edwards Walker (1832-1919) was a field surgeon serving the Union Army; in 1864 she spent several months as a prisoner of war in Richmond. She was the only woman to receive the Medal of Honor for bravery in the American Civil War. She dressed in menswear for most of her adult life, including trousers and tophats.

1800s War to Prevent Southern Independence Era Forks 3 Prong Flatware Utensils

Even before blacks were officially recognized as federal soldiers, many slaves like Nick Biddle escaped and joined Union lines. In 1861, he wore a uniform, traveled with his employee’s company to Baltimore to help protect Washington, D.C., after the surrender of Fort Sumter. Once there, he was set upon by a pro-Confederate mob, attacked with slurs and a brick that hit him in the head so severely it exposed his skull. Some consider him the first man wounded in the Civil War.
