On July 7, 1865, three men and one woman were hanged for the crime of conspiring to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln.

After the surrender of Confederate general Robert E. Lee and the announcement that Lincoln would serve a second term as president, John Wilkes Booth, a young southern actor and patriot of the Confederacy, began plotting the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. After hearing the announcement that President Lincoln would be attending a performance at the Ford Theater, Booth assigned the tasks of assassinating both Secretary of State William Seward and Vice President Andrew Johnson to a group of fellow conspirators.

Although it was Booth who fired the bullet that killed the 16th president, this group of eight lesser-known conspirators aided Booth in his scheme.

    HAH please.. the makers of this documentary (if you can even call it that) are so paranoid!!!  Oh yeah, I’m sure JWB had a whole CREW of “conspirators”??? And not ONE of them broke the oath or went to the media?  That’s impossible, no one could keep that kind of a plot secret.

    John Wilkes Booth acted alone and if you believe this stupid so-called documentary that other people helped him – well, you’re antiAmerican and I hope you end up in Gitmo.

      You need an education…..and need to stop watching football. Get a clue, the Federal Reserve owns us, you too. Wake up……..investigate. Check out the written words of Andrew Jackson, and Lincoln, and JFK. All tried to dismantle the Fed’s control on America’s economy. And all were assassinated, except Jackson, he dodged a bullet. No hate here, just hope that all Americans will wake up to the fact that we DON’T control our government…..the bankers do. Rothschild, Vanderbilts, Morgans, Chase….etc…

    There’s that scene in the Planet of the Apes where the Lincoln statue is replaced with the monkey… every time I see a shot of Lincoln I can’t help but think – dude looks like a monkey.

    Regardless, if it weren’t for Lincoln’s death, the slaves would most probably gone straight back to slavery. It’s like his death was the final period in the sentence of freedom. They do not make people like him anymore.
