The bullet that took Lincoln’s life, as well as fragments of the President’s skull, are now safely settled in their new quarters along with other items from the National Museum of Health and Medicine’s collection:
The lead ball and several skull fragments from the 16th president are in a tall, antique case overlooking a Civil War exhibit in a museum gallery in Silver Spring, just off the Capital Beltway.
The military museum, known for its collection of morbid oddities, moved in September from the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington. At Walter Reed, visitors had to pass through a security gate and find the museum on the campus, where parking could be a problem.
