Penn District and Ford Theatre
Another sunny day and we decided to head downtown to the area known as Penn District. The architecture here is predominantly new classical and the buildings include the National Archives. We walked along Pennsylvania Avenue and stopped at the FBI building! We had previously booked tickets for a tour of the Ford theatre which is where Lincoln was shot and we also visited the house across the street where he died. The whole tour was very interesting not least because we learned a lot about the history of Lincoln's presidency.
