The American Tragedy: an Audio Drama

PostTue Apr 14, 2015 12:23 pm

APRIL 14TH:

150 years ago tonight (that year, Good Friday), at about 10:13pm, the vainglorious, racist, cowardly actor John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln from behind.

In this painting, "Borne By Loving Hands" by eyewitness Carl Bersch, the 16th President is being carried across the street from Ford's Theater to the Peterson Rooming house, where he would pass into life eternal at about 7:22am the next morning.

I have been blessed to portray my fellow Midwesterner several times, including in our Quicksilver Radio Theater dramatization of this terrible day in America's history:
