John Wilkes Booth found himself in a difficult situation. For months he had planned to kidnap Lincoln. Now Lee's surrender at Appomattox meant time was running short. He only had more shot to... More > accomplish his purpose: Good Friday, and at a place he knew: Ford's Theater. In the audience, was a reporter, shocked as the evening unfolded but his shock was nothing compared to Booth's, who entered the box to see someone shoot the Tyrant. He was being set-up!
