The night on April 3 King gave his speech at the Mason Temple Church. As usual many people gathered to listen to the great words he spoke, but at the time they did not know what later events were to occur (History.com Staff).

Originally, he planned to kidnap the president and take him to the Confederate capital-Richmond; however, after the Confederacy surrendered, John’s anger made him want to kill the president (“Commentary”). As a result, on April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth entered the Ford’s Theatre and purposefully killed Abraham Lincoln that evening. “And he probably wondered whether other guests in the box were the type who pose a threat to his plans.

After that, John was on the run, and while the Union was chasing him and his injured foot was in pain, he finally made the smart decision to consequentially surrender.

News of Emmett’s story spread through the nation like a forest fire, outraging and devastating people all over, saying how brutal the murder was, or how it wasn’t brutal enough.

Even though Bryant and Milam both admitted to kidnapping Emmett, the possibility of the two men not even being there to take Emmett is beyond irrational, even when both men stated their names at Moses 's door.

The book talked about each character at different chapters, such as Charles Guiteau. In one of the chapters it talked about Charles and his plan to kill the president, and why he wanted to kill him, and how he was going to kill him.
