Summary:
John Wilkes Booth was an actor well-known but less famous and less admired than his brother Edwin who lived in New York and sympathized with the Union cause, while his younger brother raged as the Civil War turned in favor of the North. John fantasized about kidnapping the president, but after the defeat of the Confederacy, he sought deadly vengeance. The night Lincoln attended a performance at Ford's theater, Edwin was far away, knowing nothing of the plot unfolding in the nation's capital.
