  1. It clicked’ for me twntey-plus years ago when I visited Ford’s Theater. This, I realized, is not a movie set, or replica. This is where it actually happened. Visiting the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor evoked a similar response.I’ve had a few other experiences like that, where historical events suddenly became very real to me, but Ford’s Theater was one of the most vivid.
