Theater tickets from the night Abraham Lincoln was shot are up for auction, expected to go for over $80,000

What was supposed to be a regular night at the theater turned deadly in 1865.

A pair of front-row tickets from the performance that President Abraham Lincoln was watching when he was shot in 1865 are up for auction — and are expected to sell for over $80,000. 

President Abraham Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865, at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., while he was attending a performance of “Our American Cousin,” according to the Library of Congress.
