Unconscious, Lincoln was carried from Ford's Theatre to the nearby
house of Williams Peterson at 453 10th Street. There, in a room
rented to William Clark, a boarder, Abraham Lincoln died at 7:22
a.m., April 15, 1865. The artist's conception of the deathbed scene
is shown here with the dying President surrounded by his family,
members of the Cabinet, (excluding Seward, who had been seriously
stabbed in an assassination attempt the same night), officers,
and physicians. When Lincoln died Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton
is reported to have uttered his famous remark, "Now he belongs
to the ages."
