Lincoln getting shot

The Lincoln assassination conspiracy involves the assassination of Abraham Lincoln who was shot by John Wilkes Booth at Ford's Theatre on April 14, 1865. He died earlier the next day. Booth was accompanied by several co-conspirators, who consisted of David Herold, Lewis Powell, and George Atzerodt. 


The conspiracy is said to be much bigger than Booth, Herold, Powell, or Atzerodt. A pro-slavery secret society known as Knights of the Golden Circle  were behind the assassination of Lincoln. Conspiracy theorists claim that Booth and his co-conspirators were said to be the only ones to cover-up the Knights' involvement.
