Publisher's Summary

On the night of April 14th 1865, in front of a thousand people at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, DC, John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. Shouting ‘Sic semper tyrannis’ – ‘thus always to tyrants’, Booth believed that he was striking down a tyrant as surely as Brutus struck down Julius Caesar. Twelve days later Booth himself was shot dead in a barn in Virginia. From the moment Booth shot Lincoln, conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination have flourished. Some believe Booth was the ring leader of a small group; others are convinced he was simply a pawn in a grand conspiracy plot. Producer Jean Snedegar, with independent historian Michael Kauffman, takes us to the night Lincoln was shot. After the myriad of legends, what is the truth about the assassination of a great American president?
