On the evening of April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth shot President Abraham Lincoln as he watched the play, Our American Cousin. This happened at Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C. where Tommy, Nick, Mary, and Dr. Martin explored in Traveler II: An Uncivil War.
I don’t see Mr. Floyd skulking around, do you? (Don’t know who Mr. Floyd is? Read the book.)
Lincoln died early the next morning, April 15, 1865, in a house across the street from the theater. He was 56 years old.
Twelve days later, soldiers tracked Booth to a farm in Northern Virginia. A fire was set to force him to come out, but one of the soldiers shot him before he could exit. Booth died a few hours later.
Can you imagine meeting John Wilkes Booth?
What would you say to him?
Would you try to stop him?
Do you agree with how Tommy, Nick, and Mary handled things?
