What happens to the historical artifacts related to the death of a president? When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in 1865, artifacts such as bone specimens, medical tools and the actual bullet that killed him were preserved. Today, those are featured in a museum exhibit, but how did they get here? This intriguing story, told by NMHM collections managers, will serve as the capstone event for NMHM's 150th anniversary commemoration of Lincoln's death.
