not all those who wander are lost

The death mask of the most brilliant inventor in human history, Nicola Tesla. Shown here in the collection of the Henry Ford Museum in Dearnborn, Michigan.

This is the rocking chair that President Abraham Lincoln was using in the Presidential box at Ford’s Theater (no affiliation with Henry Ford) in Washington D.C. when he was shot point blank in the back of his head.

This is the view of Lincoln’s chair as it would have been seen by his assassin, actor John Wilkes Booth, who entered the Presidential box from a small wooden door to Lincoln’s left side. The single soft lead bullet was fired left to right, back to front into the President’s head, from Booth’s Derringer pistol.

The chair is still stained with the dying President’s blood, as confirmed in recent years with the advent of DNA testing.

This is the SS-100-X Lincoln Continental limousine that President John Kennedy was riding in when he was assassinated in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas, in November of 1963.

The car was used for about 15 years after the assassination, and the current museum piece has been significantly modified and altered since 1963. Both President Johnson and President Nixon used this vehicle while in office.

This is the seat location John Kennedy was in when he was shot to death, sitting next to his wife Jacqueline Kennedy.
