About Charles A. Leale

Charles A. Leale (1842–1932) was the first doctor to arrive at Ford’s Theatre after Abraham Lincoln was shot. His efforts prevented Lincoln’s immediate death and kept him alive until the next morning. Leale had graduated from medical school just six weeks earlier. He served as a surgeon in the Union Army during the final weeks of the Civil War. His book Lincoln’s Last Hour was presented in 1867 to Representative Benjamin F. Butler’s House commission that was investigating the assassination. It was not released to the public until 1909.
