Remembering Lincoln

I don't usually do two posts in one day, but I thought I'd share this (and I would have done it earlier had I been thinking clearly) - an eyewitness to Lincoln's assassination appearing on I've Got a Secret in 1956:


I mentioned to someone over at the other blog that it was mind-boggling to think of people who'd lived to see both the Civil War and World War II - but think of a man who'd seen Lincoln's assassination, and lived to tell about it on television.  Is that staggering, or am I easily amused?

  1. No I was impressed by it too... Amazing clip.

    I cringe at the blatant cigarette sponsorship (with the host having a ciggy by the desk) and handing the guy some tobacco as a thank you gift! If only people knew then....

And now for something completely different.
