"John Wilkes Booth awoke depressed."

This quote is direct as it tells that he is depressed which is his character trait.

"Booth knew the way out of fords intimately." p.11

This is an example of indirect characterization which shows that he is very observant. This quote uses Booths thoughts.

"I want you to have those shooting irons ready..." p.22

Booth is prepared in this quote using indirect characterization. This quote uses Booth's speech to characterize him.


We think he will get locked up based on his actions and feelings towards President Lincoln and how he was plotting to kill the President. His actions show how ruthless and obsessive he was in making sure that the President got what he truly deserved.
