Zen 1108: TV quiz show appearance of a man who witnessed the assassination of Abraham Lincoln

The last living eyewitness to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Samuel J Seymour, makes an appearance on a hokey 1950s game show called 'I've Got A Secret'. When I say 'eyewitness', I mean he was five and actually saw John Wilkes Booth jump from Lincoln's box at the Ford Theatre, but that's close enough for jazz. And Old Sam scored himself some sweet prizes too. Yessiree.
