Can your team save Lincoln’s life?
Go on a tour of Civil War–era New York while trying to foil a plot to kill Lincoln before he even reaches the presidency!
You’ll hold historic photos and stand where the photographers stood as you track down a time-traveling John Wilkes Booth. He’s trying to assassinate candidate Abraham Lincoln before he delivers a speech at Cooper Union that will win him the Republican nomination for president. Can you stop Booth before he rewrites history?
Recommended for ages 10 and up. No previous knowledge about the Village or Lincoln is necessary. It’s a great field-trip activity for teachers who want to introduce students to the history of New York City and Greenwich Village.
