With historian Christopher Daley on Thursday, April 9 at 6:30 p.m.
This hour lecture begins with a short synopsis of the backdrop of the Civil War leading into an examination of the plot to kidnap Lincoln and how that plot developed into a plot to assassinate. Both Lincoln and Booth's movements during the day of the assassination are meticulously chronicled using a simultaneous timeline. And then, by utilizing photographs of the period, modern photographs and video, the assassination is recounted in stunning detail. The escape and capture of Booth is fully described with photographs and video footage of the locations where he hid and the site where he was killed. The lecture concludes with a vivid description of the trial and execution of the conspirators to the assassination: Mary Surratt, Lewis Powell, David Herold and George Atzerodt.
