The assassination of Abraham Lincoln was unjust because he was an important leader, he wanted end to slavery , and he was a non-violent president. However, many people didn’t agree with most of Mr. Abraham Lincoln’s actions because he was a terrible president. Abraham Lincoln was important too America’s history because he was president during the civil war and helped the 13th amendment get passed. The 13th amendment was the amendment that ended slavery and gave slaves some rights. Many people hated him for that, but now, most think of him as one of the greatest leaders of all time.
Some of these people claimed that his political stance for equal rights for black wasn’t right because people , specifically whites, believed that black didn 't deserve to be equal and that they were inferior to all other races. But this claim isn 't true. For example, in the text, the author states,”... in the outpouring of emotion after the president 's assassination, the Civil Rights Act was passed as a way to honor President Kennedy”( Kennedy 1) .Though some claimed that Kennedy’s political stance was extremely corrupt, this was not the case Kennedy was truly passionate about equality in America, and even after death his dream lived on. In conclusion, the unlawful assassination of President JFK was totally unjustified because he believed in civil rights for all and he was an esteemed leader.Though people claim that his political stance was corrupt, it wasn 't. Kennedy’s political stance was based off of his Christian moral and beliefs.
“Had I so interfered in behalf of the rich, the powerful, the intelligent, the so-called great, or in behalf of any of their friends, [...] every man would have deemed it an act worthy of reward rather than punishment,” stated John Brown in his closing speech on November 2nd, 1859 of his raid on Harper’s Ferry. Though his goal of emancipation was progressive and well-intended, taking into consideration his motives and actions, John Brown is in fact the first notable terrorist in American history. His subsequent arrest and hanging turned him into a martyr and worsened the already strained issue of slavery between the North and the South, which ultimately culminated in the Civil War. John Brown’s strict religious upbringing and poor personal
Emery Coggeshall US History 1 CP April 15, 2016 Research Paper De Tocqueville 's Principles in the First Presidential Assassination The Assassination of the 16th president in the United States is still a big part of history and what history stands for. The assassination was the first presidential assassination in history. The assassination was on April 14, 1865 and took place in Ford 's Theater. With the bullet going through Lincoln 's head he was due to die in the morning. John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln and managed to escape but was found and killed almost fourteen days later.
The reconstruction period was a failure because African Americans, mainly males, were not treated with equality although the constitution said that the they were free and had the right to vote, be educated and had the right to liberty, life and the pursuit to happiness. Organizations, like the KKK, were created to harm freed slaves and their families. Laws were created such as the Black Codes restricting former slaves from their rights. African Americans endured a lot of violence over the years. “In Grayson, Texas, a white man and two friends murdered three former slaves because the wanted to ‘ thin the niggers out and drive them to their hole’”.
And they were believed that the KKK started because of the South economy. The south 's economy may have angered the whites in the south a lot that they blamed it on blacks when most of the economy was boosted because of slavery in the south. People today also wonder how the society could have stopped such destruction of the lives of minorities. And also support it Back in 1865. the Klan had many sources of income included funds from events of the Klan, and free will donations. Many strategies of the KKK was to brainwash the white community in the south, such created signs and events that changed the views of them from the community.

As he began to speak, he was shot several times in the chest by three men believed to be members of the Nation of Islam. He was rushed to the hospital, but was pronounced dead a few minutes after the attack (Kihss). The assassination of Malcolm X was unjust because he was a great leader who wished for a positive change in American society and was rapidly changing his views to fit a more peaceful stance; however, when he discarded many of the Nation of Islam’s views in favor of more traditional Islamic views, the Nation of Islam believed his new ideals were putting their organization in jeopardy. The Malcolm X’s assassination was sorely unjust because he was a great leader who wished for a positive change in American society.

Robert F. Kennedy developed his argument about Martin Luther 's King 's assassination by giving details about somethings Martin Luther King Jr wanted to do for people. One thing is that he didn 't put Martin Luther King 's real speech, but he did an excellent thing by informing those who didn 't know about Martin 's assassination. For example one of the things he wanted to change was that all black people should have the same rights as all white people. I agree with this because no one should be treated differently everyone should be at a equal place. He had a dream that he would change all this cruelty for the best!
The KKK was out to get any person who helped during the Reconstruction. Northerners were tired of the South’s resistance. A state Senator of Caswell, John W.

People who wanted America to change were usually killed or silenced by organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan. Anyone who supported congressmen from the South who did not want to end this problem was “…a coward, a traitor, or a fool.” (Document 3) The Klansmen created terror in Southern communities by targeting African American officials, making the community more vulnerable.
The KKK was a group against equal rights throughout African Americans. Other groups supported the Reconstruction such as Freedmen, African Americans who were freed during the war, and Carpetbaggers, people who went south to help the reconstruction in the south. There was much tension in the Reconstruction. The north killed Reconstruction in the south because the government frauds took away all President

President Johnson’s plan for reconstruction was lenient to the Southerners as he admitted the southern states back into the union. The only losers in this case were the former slave owners, as Johnson punished them by taking away their land. This plan outraged the republicans in congress as the republicans planned to admit sates back into the union on account that fifty percent of the state needed to pledge loyalty to the union with the Wade-Davis Bill. The republicans also made it clear that states would not be admitted back into the union unless the former slaves were treated equally. Since Johnson was a Democrat, he ignored his republican congress and enacted his lenient plan.
It thoroughly explains the details leading up to the event of Lincoln’s assassination and the event itself that changed America forever. The story is not only fact filled and educational, but emotionally engaging. I would consider this book not only as a historical nonfiction but as a thriller and suspense novel. The story engages the reader into Lincoln’s last days: The last moments of battle, General Lee’s surrender at Appomattox courthouse, the moment the bullet was shot in Ford’s Theatre, and the capture
