A Bullet Through America’s Heart: Lincoln’s Assassination, April 14, 1865

Today, on April 14, 1865, (Good Friday of that year), Abraham Lincoln was assassinated at Ford’s Theater in Washington, DC by the crazed Confederate sympathizer and traitor John Wilkes Booth. It was a tragedy that permanently altered history and deeply harmed America, as there could hardly have been a worse replacement for the unifying, wise, charitable, and pro-civil rights Lincoln than his racist, divisive, and irascible VP, Andrew Johnson.

It is significant that Lincoln’s murderer, Booth, shot Lincoln after hearing Lincoln express his support for full civil rights for black Americans in a speech.

When John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865, he sent a bullet straight through the heart of America. America did not die, but the wound has never been healed, merely concealed or denied. To this day, we live in a country created not by those who won the Civil War, but by those who lost the Civil War (the radical Democrats). But we have a choice now. Will we allow Booth to have the final triumph? Or will we take up the task for which Lincoln was willing to die, the unity and liberty of America?
