A Witness to Assassination – The Story of Major Henry Rathbone

For every scar there is a story, and for Major Henry Rathbone the deep scar that ran along his arm told a tale of a night that changed his life forever. Rathbone and his wife, Clara, were part of DC’s elite and were guests in a very infamous box at Ford’s Theatre on the one of the worst nights in American history. In this episode, Jen tells the story of a life turned tragic and a story that is the loose basis for The Shining.
