Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Abraham Lincoln was one of the most beloved and most powerful presidents in U.S. history.

On April 15, 1865, "Honest Abe" became the first American president to be assassinated when he died of a gunshot wound after he was shot by renowned stage actor John Wilkes Booth at a showing of the play "Our American Cousin" at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C., the previous night.

In honor of the 150th anniversary of his assassination, check out 32 memorials in America and around the world dedicated to the legendary 16th president here.
