    According to Ford’s Theatre, the historic site that commemorates the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Bill O’Reilly’s new book about the 16th president, Killing Lincoln, is so factually flawed that it shouldn’t be sold at its bookstore. For instance, O’Reilly references the Oval Office, but that wasn’t built until 1909. He also goofs on the date that the theater burned down and inaccurately states that Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee met only once. The site’s deputy superintendent issued a four-page critique, concluding that the book shouldn’t be sold at the theater’s store.
