"THE GUN THAT SHOT ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND IS DISPLAYED ON THE WALL OF FORDS
THEATER TODAY IS A WOMAN'S DERRINGER WITH A WHITE PEARL HANDLE!!
Would anyone (especially a man in the 1860s) in their right mind try to
kill the President of the United States with a one shot small pistol
normally carried by a woman? Six shooter revolvers existed in the 1860s
and if one were to plot to kill a President, one would logically have
more than one bullet in the barrel.
Mary Todd Lincoln, like many women in Washington during the American
Civil War carried a derringer....But Mary Todd also owned a derringer
with a white pearl handle....that fact is in the National Archives. And
she waved, flashed and flaunted her pearly pop gun often on the streets
of Washington D.C. and The White House."
