When John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War was ending and emotions were high. Killing the President was just part of Booth's plan. Join us to explore this fragile time in our history and the plot that very nearly succeeded in toppling the government.

David E. Jones, a resident of Minneapolis, has been presenting on ten historical topics (Lincoln Assassination, Mount Rushmore, JFK Assassination, Apollo Moon program, Statue of Liberty, Washington Monument, Charles Lindbergh, the 1936 Olympics, United States Flag and Prohibition) since 1996. He has made more than 1,500 presentations to more than 40,000 people.
