Lincoln is Assassinated

By Daniel Peyton and Kirt Davis
Civil War Reporter

President Lincoln was assassinated on the 14th of April, 1865, at Ford's Theater in Washington D.C. He was watching a play when an actor in it named John Wilkes Booth shot him, thinking he was helping the South. However it was exactly the oposite of what John thought, the U.S. will forever miss him.
