I am so excited to see the play at Fords Theater in Washington D.C.
Just watch the play honey
Why is my guard not here watching the play?
Lincoln got shot
Sic semper tyrannis!!!
Oh my god, my husband got shot
Abraham Lincoln went to a play with his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln and Major Henry Rathbone and his fiance Clara Harris Rathbone.
John Booth runs away
I need to get out of here and meet up with David Herold
Abraham Lincolns bodyguard John Federick Parker was not in the booth the night of the assassination because he got bored of the play and left the theater to go to the bar next door.
Richard Garetts farm
Lincoln got shot in the back of the head by John Wilkes Booth.
Booth and Herold are captured
After John Booth shot Lincoln he went to meet David Herold to go to Virginia.
Both Booth and Herold hide at Richard Garetts farm while union soldiers are storming the area.
Thank you for letting us stay here at your barn
John Booth and David Herold are found by Union soldiers on April 26 in Richard Garetts farm. David Herold stepped out of the barn but Booth refused to leave the barn. After that the union soldiers set the barn on fire with Booth still inside. Thompson P. Boston Corbett shot Booth in the neck and arm. Booth died three hours later while David Herold was hung.
