The Lincoln Assassination: The Conspirators in Photograph

January 3rd, 2013

Just as the Civil War drew to a close, President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth who fired a bullet into the brain of the President as he watched “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theatre on April 14, 1865. Booth leaped from the presidential box to the stage, he cried as he ran off “Sic Semper Tyrannus!,” he escape on horseback, and was killed by a bullet twelve days later in a burning Virginia barn. In Booth’s diary, he insisted he shouted “Sic semper tyrannus!” (“Thus to tyrants!”) before he shot Lincoln. Most accounts of the assassination report that Booth broke his leg upon landing on the stage. Eyewitnesses, however, did not report that Booth limped across the stage and one historian, Michael Kaufmann, argued that Booth injured his leg in his hurried attempt to mount his horse after exiting Ford’s theater. Few Americans, however, know that Booth’s evil deed was part of a larger conspiracy of Confederate sympathizers–a conspiracy whose targets included Vice President Johnson and Secretary of State Seward and which had as its goal destabilization of the entire federal government. Fewer Americans yet know the fascinating story of the trial of eight conspirators before a specially appointed military commission in Washington. 27-year-old John Wilkes Booth — was tracked down and shot to death by Union soldiers in Virginia. Eight others were convicted of being conspirators with Booth. Four were sentenced to death and hung, including the first woman

Principles of Evolution, Ecology and Behavior (EEB 122) Geology and climate have shaped the development of life tremendously. This has occurred in the form of processes such as the oxygenation of the atmosphere, mass extinctions, tectonic drift, and disasters such as floods and volcanic eruptions. Life, particularly bacteria, has also been able to impact the geological makeup of the planet through metabolic processes. 00:00 – Chapter 1. Introduction 02:16 – Chapter 2.

This may be one of the most promising mobile ad formats and is a space to watch.”
