“John” notes that Booth’s family was a renowned acting dynasty at the time of the Civil War. Booth himself was an ardent supporter of slavery with a burning hatred for Abraham Lincoln (Britannica.com). “Assassination,” suggests that Booth’s hatred of Lincoln may have been caused in part Lincoln’s undemocratic practices. The President deemed censorship of speeches and newspapers necessary during the Civil War. Additionally, the President was able to suspend any writ of habeas corpus, which prevented trials from taking place (2009).
One of Dr. King’s most famous march was the march on Selma. Dr. King didn’t believe in violence during these strikes. Dr. King practiced non-violent social change which is another reason why his assassination was unjust. During the march on Selma 100 troopers and police attacked the marchers this was known as “Bloody Sunday.” Dr. King did suffer a lot during the civil rights movements, in 1958 a black woman stabbed him. In 1963, Martin Luther King made his most famous speech “I have a dream” which caused a huge impact on the Civil Rights Movements.
In this line, RFK is obviously referring to his brother JFK and implies that he is no stranger to death. The words “white man” show he is addressing the African American community since MLK was killed by a white man, and they were affected the most by MLK’s death. Kennedy’s medium is a speech because it provides a strong sense of intimacy. Kennedy takes advantage of this intimacy, with a direct call to action: “So I ask you tonight to return home, to say a prayer” (35). RFK urged his audience to return home peacefully rather than lash out violently.
However, Lincoln did not do this. Lincoln 's Emancipation Proclamation did not include border States such as Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky, and others.Although beloved by many, Lincoln caused the war between the states, a conflict which more than 600,000 Americans were killed, made many unconstitutional decisions, and behaved as a dictator, rather than a president. On January 21st, 1861, Jefferson Davis gave his farewell address to the United States Senate following South Carolina’s and Mississippi’s secession from the United States. Throughout his speech, Davis continually reiterated the fact that all states had the right to seceed. Later, in his inaugural address to the Confederate States of America, Davis stated that the Confederate States “want peace” with the United States.
“Buchanan, a Democrat who was morally opposed to slavery but believed it was protected by the U.S. Constitution, was elected”( Source #5)This quote explains how another president had the same mindset of Abraham but still couldn't officially end slavery.”Taylor entered the White House at a time when the issue of slavery and its extension into the new western territories (including Texas) had caused a major rift between the North and South”(Source #7).

Martin Luther King did not die a peaceful death. Infact he got assassinated by James Earl Ray. He killed him because he probably didn’t want equality for blacks and whites. That is why we need everybody to live out Martin Luther King Jr’s
was alive today he would be eighty-seven years old. It would be nice to believe he would’ve served as America’s first black president or sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. In many ways our nation has taken a step back from Dr. King’s successes. How would he feel about the killing of white police officers nationwide? How would he feel about the gangs which have invaded our inner cities?
Abraham Lincoln, our 16th president of the United States, was our 1st president to get assassinated. He attending the play Our American Cousin at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. before he was shot in the back of his head by the well known theatre actor John Wilkes.

Andrew Jackson supported states rights and the expansion of slavery to the West. He also had a role in the forced relocation of the Native Americans West of the Mississippi River. Some people would consider Andrew Jackson to be a great president because he did things like revolutionizing presidential campaigning. He also used the power to veto bills that he saw unfit. Some people would say that Andrew Jackson was a terrible president because he made the Indians move and he abused the power to veto to try and take more control over congress.
“The purpose of protecting the life of our Nation and preserving the liberty of our citizens is to pursue the happiness of our people. Our success in that pursuit is the test of our success as a Nation.” The assassination of Kennedy put many American citizens on edge and many Americans felt sympathy for Johnson as he was sworn in as president under difficult circumstances. He was sworn in as Vice President of the United States in January 1961, after he had become the Kennedy's running mate in 1960. On November 22, 1963, after the assassination of President John F.

He also prohibited racial discrimination and laid the groundwork for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. JFK was the 35th president of the United States. He served in both the House of Representatives and the Senate before becoming the 35th president.
I believe that it is hard to correctly pin point the absolute reason why he was assassinated considering the fact that the only suspect they had in the case of J.F.K was shot and killed. Lee Harvey Oswald was a pretty accurate suspect considering the fact that Oswald bought a gun just days before the assassination and had been to Russia. Lyndon B. Johnson benefitted from J.F.K’s assassination because he was sworn into office, shortly after the president died. J.F.K. wanted to avoid conflict between countries and didn’t want to go to war.
It was the Peterson house where Lincoln died.

(History.com) JFK’s assassination was extremely unjust due to his great contributions to the ending of segregational laws and other problems this country faced at that period in history. The fact that this man had the audacity to eliminate such a key figure in American politics is shocking. John F. Kennedy did not deserve such an abrupt ending to his life, for he was the leader this country needed at that time. His contributions to end segregation will be forever remembered. A few of his contributions included, making sure that African Americans
