  • Mr. Samuel J. Seymour, the last living eyewitness to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C. was the mystery guest on the February 8, 1956 episode of the I've Got a Secret game show. Mr. Seymour (March 28, 1860 – April 12, 1956) was actually 95 years of age at the time of this appearance instead of 96.

    Host: Garry Moore
    Panelists from left to right: Bill Cullen, Jayne Meadows, Henry Morgan, Lucile Ball

    I realize that clips from this show are available elsewhere on YouTube, but I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to put it on my channel and share it with those of you who may not have already seen it. I have also added an excerpt of the article mentioned to the end of the video which sheds a little more light on Mr. Seymour's horrifying experience.

    Here is the link to the article, "I Saw Lincoln Shot" by/about Mr. Seymour mentioned in the video: https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=wHUxAAAAIBAJ&sjid=SBAEAAAAIBAJ&pg=5624%2C3979599
