|The Perfect Rocking Chair||
Abraham Lincoln Rocked Here
A little gross, perhaps - but this is the actual chair Lincoln was sitting in when he was assassinated. This upholstered rocking chair was in the box at Ford's Theater in Washington, but was since moved to the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, so not many people have seen it (as least, not as many as if it were in Washington). You can see the bloodstains from Lincoln's head wound even now. Ouch. The museum is the American history in the Henry Ford Museum at Greenfield Village, just southwest of Detroit. (For more information, go to Greenfield Village.)

Holden loves rocking chairs and loves writing about them almost as much.
