Last Living Witness to Lincoln’s Assassination

This is an amazing clip from a 50s television show called “I’ve Got a Secret.” The special guest is Samuel J. Seymour, who was the last living witness to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Seymour died just two months later. Also on the program was Jayne Meadows (widow of Steve Allen and sister of Audrey Meadows of The Honeymooners), who is still living.
