Booth By Himself in Killing Lincoln

Booth planned Lincoln's death and killed Lincoln ALL ALONE

Reasons That This is True?


  • Well, a reason for this murder is believed to be that Booth was murdering Lincoln in a rage. Booth believed that Lincoln was trying to over throw the Constitution, and take over his beloved South. As well as that, Booth was known as a very racist person, and the thought of Lincoln making slaves citizens enraged the famous actor.

  • Another reason would be that Booth tried to persuade others to join him. Why would he persuade other people to join him if he wasn't alone?

COUNTERCLAIMS, AND REASONS THEY'RE WRONG:

TWO REASONS AGAINST WHAT WE ARE SAYING, AND WHY THEY ARE INCORRECT

Booth was part of a mastermind plan/a big Confederate plot.

This theory says that John Wilkes Booth was said to have communication with Confederate leaders. But, this story is flawed and muddled, how could it be true? One version of this story even states that Booth had contact with Confederate leaders in Canada! Now, does that seem right? Ninety-nine percent of stories agree the same thing-Booth planned this murder by himself, due to failed kidnapping attempts, and persuaded other people to join him in this plan.


Booth received his idea for assassinating Lincoln from other Federalists.

Although it is thought that Booth received his information elsewhere, it is shown that Booth's deep hatred for Lincoln sparked the idea of the assassination. You can see this is in many conspiritual books, such as Chasing Lincoln's Killer and The 12 Day Chase.
