Baby Philadelphia Derringer (the gun used by John Wilkes Boothe to shoot Lincoln). #22-1018G.
John Wilkes Boothe Derringer
- The Baby Philadelphia Percussion Pistol used by John Wilkes Boothe in 1865 to assassinate President Lincoln as he sat watching a play in the Ford Theater was very similar to this historically authentic replica.
A favorite hideaway gun of gamblers and cardsharks, the Baby Philadelphia was only 6.5" long, and easily concealed in a coat or boot--doubtless the reason it was the weapon chosen by Boothe for his heinous act of presidential murder.
