GIS Story Map of the Lincoln Assassination

Mapping the Death of President Lincoln

On the 150th anniversary of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, leading GIS software developer ESRI has created an interactive story map of the events leading up to his death on April 14, 1865.  Users can take a geographic tour tracking John Wilkes Booth and the other conspirators on a 1865 map of Washington, DC from the collection of David Rumsey.

The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) on the second floor of Bracken Library provides ESRI GIS software and instructional assistance from the GIS Specialist, Angela Gibson.  For more information about using GIS for research and learning, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097.
