“The Lincoln Assassination: A Fragile Time" January 20

When John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War was ending and emotions were high. Killing the President was just part of Booth’s plan. Join us to explore this fragile time in our history and the plot that very nearly succeeded in toppling the government. We are all familiar with the basic story of John Wilkes Booth shooting Lincoln at the theater, but what other forces were at work? Who were the people that Booth pulled into a conspiracy leading eight others to be convicted? Presenter: David Jones
