Lincoln Assassination Replica Pistol Box Set

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth shot and killed one of the greatest presidents in American history, Abraham Lincoln, as he watched a production of Our American Cousin at Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C. The assassination was part of greater plot to create unrest and topple the newly established Federal Government in the wake of the Civil War. Booth’s co-conspirators were unsuccessful in their plans to assassinate Vice President Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State William Seward and the attempted coup failed. Booth escaped Ford’s Theater badly injured and was killed by federal soldiers on April 26, 1865. The gun Booth used was known as a Baby Philadelphia Derringer, a single shot, percussion cap pocket pistol originally designed in 1850. This non-firing replica reveals the unassuming simplicity of this 19th century pistol and a general appearance that deceives the pivotal role this basic firearm played in our nation’s history. This non-firing replica comes in a wood presentation box with story card. Box Measures 7.5" x 4.5" Weight: 1.75lbs
