On April 15th, 1865, actor John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln while the president attended the play Our American Cousin. 150 years later, Lincoln's former home of Springfield, IL commemorates the beloved president with a series of events throughout April and early May.
To honor the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's passing, we created a quiz that challenges history aficianados on their knowledge of the 16th president. If you think you're an expert, see if you can answer these questions about lesser-known Lincoln facts. Teachers, after taking the quiz yourself, challenge students to take it alongside in-depth lessons on Lincoln.
