Is there a Doctor in the house?

Researchers find report from first doctor to treat Lincoln after gunshot wound.  There was a physician attending the play at Ford's Theater the night President Lincoln was shot.  He sat but 40 feet from Lincoln and saw Booth jump into the President's box brandishing a dagger.  It is an interesting story and the first draft of these Doctor's report of Lincoln's wounds has been stored in the archives unseen for 147 years.
