I know this is a very old clip, but to me 1956 just doesn't seem that long ago.. and to think this man was there to witness Lincoln's assassination..it's an amazing piece of footage. Great find Lava!

Glad you enjoyed it. Imagine, in about 30 or 40 years, someone will be the last surviving witness to the JFK assassination!

This man was a living time capsule. How sad that his only recollection is one of sorrow with Booth.
If I'd been on that panel I'd have to get up not just help Gary Moore help the man; but shake that mans hand. I've worked in an emergency room for many years; and I love talking to the older people that come through. I've heard some amazing stories from people like this man; who were present for other historic events.

Good comment, Bronco46.

I like to talk to WWII veterans and Korean War veterans because they too are living time capsules.
