On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, he attended the play 'Our American Cousin' at Ford's Theater. John Wilkes Booth, who was a famous actor and friend of owner John Ford, had free access to all parts of the theater, sneaked into his box and shot him fatally in the back of the head with a .44 caliber Deringer pistol.
