The Mourning of Lincoln Assassination 

President Lincoln killed while attending a play at Ford's Theater. At 10:20 p.m. during "Our American Cousin." He was killed by John Wilkes Booth. Union Soldiers chased him into a near by barn where they set the barn on fire to lead him out. Booth was shot at 7:22 the following morning. President Lincoln was a very brave man and will be missed dearly. This is a huge loss in the United States of America. He was a hero to slaves and the Union Army. at 10:15 booth went into the box where Lincoln was sitting and fired his .44-caliber single shot to the back of the head. after stabbing Rathbone in the shoulder booth got on stage and said," sic semper tyrannis!"
