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
