Ford's Theatre Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
Join us at Ford's Theatre to help improve and create Wikipedia articles related to Lincoln's assassination. There were nearly 2,000 witnesses and thousands of other individuals whose responses to the assassination provide a rich illustration of a country reeling from unprecedented tragedy. This edit-a-thon will focus on bringing some of those stories to light.
