FORD’S THEATRE PRESIDENTIAL BOX FLAGS
Lincoln’s assassination was arguably one of the last major events in the Civil War. As the site of that event, we believe the Ford’s Theater should be preserved in much the same manner as the battlefields. The Ford’s Theatre was undergoing renovation, including the Presidential Box. We participated by funding the replacement of three of the flags that hung on the Presidential Box on the night of Lincoln’s assassination. The flags are exact replicas, down to the silk materials and hand painting.
