      Samuel Seymour was 5 years old when he was taken to Ford's Theater on the night that Lincoln was assasinated. He would be the last surving eyewitness to that tragic event and at the age of 96 would appear on a CBS game show. The link to the video is here .

            Mr. Seymour died two months after the taping of that show. Ironically, he died on the 95th anniversary of the firing on Fort Sumter (April 12, 1956).
