In 1865, Abraham Lincoln was attending the comedy "Our American Cousin" at Ford's Theatre when actor John Wilkes Booth fatally shot him. Did you know the infamous day actually started out as "surely one of [Lincoln's] happiest"? Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin traces the events that led up to the fateful evening.
 
 
 
 
Photo of the Day
 
We have stayed in the purpose built camp in the Southern Serengeti to avoid the crowds and experience intimate proximity to animals. One of early morning this large pride of lions have been playing around.  I have followed this young magnificent male with my camera until he stood patiently looking beyond horizon with his mane lightly touched by the wind.  And of course one of females close to him.
