    George Atzerodt. Would've been known as the killer of Vice President Johnson but lost his nerve and got drunk. Agreed to kidnap Lincoln but also got drunk again. A bartender gave him up.


    [​IMG]

    David Herold. The only conspirator to meet Lincoln. His knowledge of the southern back roads if why Booth used him.

    Samuel Arnold. Was involved in a conspiracy to kidnap Lincoln but dropped out of the assassination of him.

    Arrest pic of Lewis Powell (in High Definition color). John Wilkes Booth right hand man who conspired to kill President Lincoln and was the man who was suppose to kill Secretary William Seward, a job he failed at.

    John Wilkes Booth.

    The Deringer used to kill Lincoln by Booth.

    The chair is at the Henry Ford museum in Detroit. I've been five feet from it. It was weird seeing the blood stains.

    Great Pics LT.

    the guy that had knowledge of southern back roads brings me back. was driving to NYC on a two lane piss road, saw a historical highway marker, noticed it said something about Lincoln, so I turned around to read it. it said
    on this spot John Wilkes Booth was found in a barn and killed by union troops.
    I was like holy shit, now thats a historical spot.
    historical highway markers in Virginia should never be ignored, I saw ton that were major intersting
