Talk:Ford's Theatre


The text says, in the opening paragraph, that it "is an active theater ... used for various performances", yet the text seems to suggest it's nothing but a museum now (even going so far as to mention the government order "forever prohibiting its use as a place of public amusement". So, which is it? If it is still, as the opening says, used for performances, can this be expanded upon (the performances co-existing with the museum) and how the order was circumvented? --Canuckguy 18:08, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Possible discrepancy

In addition, a number of Lincoln's family items, his coat (without the blood stained pieces), the blood-stained pillow from the president's deathbed, some statues of Lincoln, and several large portraits of the president, are on display in the museum.

The Petersen House article says that Lincoln's blood-stained pillow is in the room where he died. --Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:57, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Rewrite to eliminate irrelevant information, confusion

This article needs rewriting by a qualified party. It spends a lot of space describing historical objects related to the Abraham Lincoln assassination and their presence at other museums. May I gently remind that this article is about FORD'S THEATRE, not the Lincoln assassination; references to historical assassination-significant objects probably belong in an article about the assassination, to which this article can merely refer.

This article further needs a rewrite by a qualified party to eliminate confusion between the role of the National Park Service (a government agency not responsible for interpretive programming content) in the Theatre and Petersen House, and the private Ford's Theatre Society (which is responsible for content). Because Lincoln is a controversial figure, this is an important distinction readers/researchers should 1)understand to assist in locating and organizing relevant information about, and 2) discern in terms of content responsibility for, the Theatre and associated buildings vs. what they house. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:14, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
