Using Google Earth to Tour the Lincoln Assassination
You know that I am a huge fan of Google Earth. Lately I have really enjoyed creating tours of various locations like the Rose Woods and Devil’s Den in Gettysburg. With the 150th anniversary of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, I thought I would offer a Google Earth tour of the events surrounding the assassination.
The tour focuses on the last days of President Lincoln and his killer, the famed actor John Wilkes Booth.
You can download the KMZ (zipped) file for yourself and enjoy the tour. If you’d like to open the file on your iPad, use this KMZ link.

Using original photographs and Google Earth to Explore the Battle of Gettysburg
In an effort to continue my exploration of original Gettysburg photographs using Google Earth, I have created a new video on exploring some of the famous locations in Devil’s Den. Be sure to check out my Rose Woods video and other videos on my YouTube Channel. You can find all of the original photos via the Library of Congress website.
If you’d like to download the Google Earth file for this video, you can find it at: Devil’s Den KMZ file.
I am often asked about where the Rose Woods is in Gettysburg and how others can find it when they visit. Well, I took a few minutes and created a video showing you exactly where the Rose Woods is in Gettysburg and where you can find the famous photographs of the dead soldiers.
