The National Police Gazette detailed the events of Lincoln’s assassination.
John Wilkes Booth’s attack on Lincoln was part of a larger plot to assassinate national leaders and throw the North into turmoil. The conspirators also planned to murder Vice President Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State William Seward. Besides Booth, eight individuals were charged. Because the plot was considered an act of war, a military commission tried the accused. The court sentenced four suspects to be hanged, and the others to prison.

This whistle was part of the survival kit in Freedom 7, the first Mercury mission, in which Alan Shepard became the first American in space. It could be used to attract the attention of rescuers.
