Moments of Crisis: Lincoln’s Assassination

Sat, Nov 18, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm

The Union, celebrating victory over the South and an end to the Civil War, was dealt a cruel blow by John Wilkes Booth when he assassinated President Abraham Lincoln on 14 April 1865. Although not the first attempt on a president’s life – including Lincoln himself – this first successful assassination of an American president had actually been at attempt at a full decapitation of Union leadership, targeting more than just Lincoln.
