Tom Taylor: Our American Cousin

Lincoln was watching a play "Our American Cousin" by Tom Taylor when he was assassinated.  

Ed Jajko notes:
The curious may find a text -- there are variants -- of Our American Cousin at, where it has been posted by Project Gutenberg. Another text, rather easier to read, is at Remember to look behind you halfway through scene 2 of act III.
