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.
