Registration opens January 8
Join John and Pamela Voehl on Friday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m., as they take us back in time to the evening of April 14, 1865. On April 9, word had reached Washington that Confederate General Robert E. Lee had unconditionally surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to General U. S. Grant. This signified a death blow to the Confederacy, after four years of war and death. President Lincoln’s heavy burden is finally lessened, and the relief he feels is obvious. The President and Mrs. Lincoln could finally treat themselves to an enjoyable and relaxing evening at Ford’s Theater. We join them at the White House and we can hear their last full conversation before leaving for the theater.
You won’t want to miss this incredible portrayal of the last few hours the Lincolns would enjoy together, and to hear how the Voehls enact the conversations and the emotions the Lincolns were feeling during these moments before history was forever changed.
