Lincoln's Last Days by Bill O'Reilly

In remembrance of our fine president

On April 14, our 14th president Abraham Lincoln was killed. At 10:00 that night, Lincoln was assassinated by a Confederate fanatic and famous actor John Wilkes Booth, while at Fords Theater. Lincoln was shot in the back of the head, while his assailant jumped on to the stage and escaped, though he broke his own leg in the process. The perpetrator then escaped into the crowd and left on a carriage. The evil thespian later found refuge at a hospital where Booth got treated for his injures and continued on. But fear not, Booth was later found and killed in a barn by a deputy, serves him right. Lincoln was a great man and will be remembered.
