After reading Killing of Lincoln I wanted to see what others thought was the reason Booth assassinated him.
I agree with you. John Wilkes Booth did most of his acting in the South. He found southern people very nice. Had he lived in the North, he may have changed his mind.
I am doing a research paper on Abe's death, and I Highly believe that no one is EVIL, rather it is what they believe in and how they were raised. Booth was only simply defending his precious South, however it did NOT make what he did right.
What party did Booth belong to? Was he a Democrat as were most of the segregationists? His family,"The Booth's" were regarded or described as "Radical" by other authors................WillPen 1
i dont think anyone would be stupid enough to even try to shoot the president now!
i kno tis happened a long time ago but still why shoot somebody if you dont like them. heck if it was like that now i think i would already be dead!!!!
i wish i was there and brfore he killed Abraham Lincoln i would shoot him. Abraham Lincoln was one of the Greatest President and also George Washington. These 2 are my favorite President. Booth Shouldn't have done that. Its really sad
Booth killed the leader of the Northern suppressors which made perfect sense during a war of rebellion. Why should the leader be above the danger that he put the common soldier into?
Damn.....I hate booth he was evil Abraham Lincoln didn't even kno him wtf he was jealy can't believe someone would do that #Abe's Death
This had all of the information i needed!!! BUt it is sad. I am worried about our new President for being shot.
