Hershey Felder's AN AMERICAN STORY • For this new production, Hershey Felder will create the role of Dr. Charles Augustus Leale, the 23-year-old unknown Union Army medic who was the first individual to reach the presidential box at Ford’s Theatre on the night President Lincoln was shot. Mrs. Lincoln then put Dr. Leale in charge to see the President through his last hours.

Set in New York City in 1932, 90-year old Dr. Charles Leale tells his story as he travels back in time and recounts the events that, 67 years before, changed his life forever. 

AN AMERICAN STORY is based on Dr. Leale’s account, "Lincoln’s Last Hours," as well as Dr. Leale’s original report of 1865 discovered only recently amongst Lincoln’s papers in Washington, DC, in June of 2012 creating an International sensation.
