Question: On this day, April 14th in 1865, President Lincoln was shot and mortally wounded by John Wilkes Booth while attending a play at Ford's Theater. What was the name of the play?

Answer: Our American Cousin is a play in three acts by Tom Taylor. The play is a farcical comedy whose plot is based on the introduction of an awkward, boorish American to his aristocratic English relatives. Halfway through Act III, Scene 2, John Wilkes Booth, an actor at Ford's Theatre but who was not in the cast of Our American Cousin, shot President Abraham Lincoln.
