More Abraham Lincoln Relics

On April 14th, 1865 John Wilkes Booth and his fellow conspirators executed their plan to disrupt the government of the United States by having Booth shoot Lincoln at Ford's Theater and Lewis Powell attack Secretary of State William Seward in his home. Lincoln died the following day but Seward survived the attack.

This relic of Lincoln's death bed sheet originated from the effects of Charles K. Tuckerman, the first American Minister to Greece, who wrote a letter provenance for the bed sheet in his own hand. It is presented with small strands of Abraham Lincoln's (left) and William Seward's hair (right) collected by Mrs. Caroline Wright, the wife of the Governor of Indiana Joseph Wright. The Wrights were close friends of the Lincolns and Mrs. Wright had requested samples of hair for her collection.
