Photo taken in Washington D.C. 1865.
Louisa traveled from her home in Philadelphia to Washington D.C. to accompany her brother-in-law, John McGraw, home. John had been wounded in battle. Family oral history has it that the night before beginning their long trip home to Philly, Louisa and John attended the theater. The theater was Ford's Theater. John and Louisa were in the audience the night President Lincoln was shot.
