Did Lizzie Borden Get Away with Murder? “Lizzie Borden took an axe / And gave her mother forty whacks / When she saw what she had done / She gave her father forty-one” (Linder). In today’s time, many children know this nursery rhyme as a scary story similar to other chants like Bloody Mary. However, this rhyme is actually based off of a theory involving the Borden murders.

Booth is the only man of the plot who succeeded. The details are well known to every American school kid. He shot Lincoln in the back of the head with a .44 caliber Derringer, percussion-cap pistol, during a performance of “Our American Cousin,” at Ford’s Theater in Washington D. C. He then leaped to the stage, breaking his left fibula, shouted, “Sic semper tyrannis!” and may have shouted, “The South is avenged!” Most importantly, Lincoln’s assassination reminded humanity that when a war ends, the animosity between sides may not, and usually does not. To win a war, therefore, regardless of whether it should be fought, or which side is the good side does not put an end to the human capacity to hate. Thus, no victory will ever be the last.
