April 14, 1865: Abraham Lincoln shot in the evening

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


During our younger days in Cuba, our great Uncle Joaquin used to tell us stories about President Abraham Lincoln.   In fact, I’m always reminded of those stories whenever there is a Lincoln anniversary. 
On April 14, 1865, AP correspondent Lawrence A. Gobright filed a report that President Lincoln had been shot.    
Shortly after, the wounded President was moved across the street to the house of William Petersen at 453 10th St. NW.    He was placed in a small room on the first floor.   I don’t know why he was not taken to a hospital.
Mrs. Lincoln and the surgeons stayed with the President all night.    
Vice President Andrew Johnson dropped in for a visit around 2 am.   (By the way, this is the same President Johnson impeached in May 1868)
Dr. Charles S. Taft observed that the President stopped breathing “at 7:21 and 55 seconds in the morning of April 15th, and 7:22 and 10 seconds his pulse ceased to beat.”  (Eisenschiml)
After some silence, Secretary Stanton said:   “Now he belongs to the ages“.
Many years later, I can still remember the look in my late uncle’s eyes when he told that story, specially the line about belonging to the ages.
P.S.  You can listen to my show (Canto Talk).  If you like our posts, drop a dime here.
