Day 5

It was April 15, 1865,

To day we went to the play called “Our American Cousin." Father loves that play. We heard that president Lincoln would be there. I was so happy to go and meet him. During the play We had to stop it because president Lincoln arrived! I was so happy to see him!

During the play I heard a shot, but I must have imaged it. A little later I then heard some one yell and I looked  up to president Lincoln to see him dead. Daddy saw to so he covered my eyes. I heard a crack and I was so scared. I than heard some on shout it some weird language.

I than heard to mr. booth killed the president. I was sad to hear that. He was our hero and are savior. I think I might cry for his death.
