Abe Lincoln's coffee mug he used right before leaving for Fords Theater.

Just before departing for Fords Theater for the last time, President Abraham Lincoln left this cup on a windowsill. A White House servant preserved it as a relic of that tragic night.

"The photo of Lincoln lying in an open coffin is the only one that exists. It was taken by photographer Jeremiah Gurney, Jr., on April 24, 1865, as the president’s body lay in state in City Hall in New York. It was immediately confiscated by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton (1814-1869) and was hidden away for 87 years until it was discovered in the Illinois State Historical Library in 1952, by then 15-year-old Ronald Rietveld, who was researching the papers of Lincoln’s personal secretaries."
