Ford’s Theatre: “Our American Cousin” Twitter Responses

Overview: These tweets highlight my firsthand perspective at the April 14th Ford’s Theatre showing of “Our American Cousin.”


What?! I definitely just saw @AbeLincoln and his wife in a box here at the Ford. #OURAMERICANCOUSIN


Where did that incredibly loud noise come from??? There’s confusion throughout the Theatre!!


A suspicious man just jumped from @AbeLincoln‘s box. Did he just shout “Sic Semper Tyrannis”?!!! Someone explain! #OURAMERICANCOUSIN


WHY IS @AbeLincoln SLUMPED OVER?! His wife appears to be crying and holding him!

I don’t believe what I’m seeing?! @AbeLincoln‘s state of health hasn’t yet been confirmed.


I hope he’s alright. Currently awaiting further updates.
