David Dorn, the man who saw Tad Lincoln in the State Box

So I take it, that like with so many of the eye witness accounts, this must also be taken with a grain of salt.

Nope. It's not Mr. Oldroyd's.

Hint: The owner had served in the Confederacy and surrendered at Appomattox Court House with Lee.

Pink Parker's.

Absolutely correct Joe. I was able to purchase a copy of the booklet regarding Mr. Parker and so I scanned this better image of him and his celebratory badge to put on my blog:

What a strange guy.

One thing you can say about Pink Parker: He sure knew how to hold a grudge...

RE: Assassination Trivia
The remains at the Lincoln Memorial in Springfield have been dug up and moved numerous times. Who is the only person to have been buried in the tomb, taken out, never to return?

You got it Roger. Jack died in Europe after an operatrion. His father, Robert Todd Lincoln, brought him back to have him placed in the tomb in Springfield. He was then removed to be reinterred with his father in Arlington.

RE: Assassination Trivia
Who wrote about the assassination:
"The day of the murder we heard the news very early in the morning. Mother prepared breakfast - and other meals afterward - as usual; but not a mouthful was eaten all day by either of us. We each drank half a cup of coffee, that was all. Little was said. We got every newspaper morning and evening, and the frequent extras of that period, and pass'd them silently to each other."

Was this written by the sister of one of Tad Lincoln's playmates, whose name escapes me right now?

You are probably thinking of Julia Taft? Good guess, but it was a male's report.
