“Mary Todd Lincoln's Bloody Cloak”

by footnoteMaven

"'Biohistory'—the combination of biological testing and history—is one of the most exciting new fields of scientific inquiry."
~ Lori Andrews ~

On the evening of April 14, 1865, Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln attended a performance of "Our American Cousin" at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. Here, as we are all aware, President Lincoln was shot in the back of the head by assassin John Wilkes Booth.

Two physician's were attending the performance and rushed to the president's box where they tried desperately to save President Lincoln's life. One of those physicians, Dr. Charles S. Taft, cut away a small patch of Lincoln's hair in an attempt to treat the bullet wound.
