Yeah, what exactly are you planning Booth?
We need to send the government in a tailspin!
And just how are you planning to do that?
I, Lewis Thorton Powell, hereby swear my alligence to the United States Army.
Congratulations, and welcome to the union.
Finally, someone has spoken up against this unruly government!
President Lincoln has been shot and killed!
I charge you, Lewis Thorton Powell, to be hung until you're dead, dead, dead, on the counts of conspiracy and attempted murder.
