1865 Journal Entry

Dear journal,
     Today is April 15, 1865 and it is a very sad day because yesterday was a death of a very important leader, Abraham Lincoln. The word is spreading fast and apparently he was assassinated last night while he was attending a play at Ford's Theater in the capital around 10:20 p.m. He was watching the play "Our American Cousin" with his wife, Mary and a young couple. Imagine how horrible that would have been to be standing right next to him when he was shot just like his wife had. So today we our now mourning a terrible loss and praying for Abraham Lincoln and the rest of his family, but he will be in a better place now. I really hope that my family is doing well!
