James L. Swanson Chasing Lincoln’s Killer 2009 Chasing Lincoln’s Killer is a book about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, a past United States of America president. The introduction of the book is how John Wilkes Booth, Lincoln’s killer, and his accomplices, made a plan to kidnap the American president, but their plan failed. So, John Wilkes Booth and his little gang decide to kill the President, the Vice President, and the Secretary of State in one night. John Wilkes Booth would kill the president at Ford’s theater, His accomplice George Atzerodt would kill the Vice President at the Vice President’s hotel room. Lewis Powell and David Herold would kill the Secretary of State.
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. It didn’t matter, really; no one was going to stop him from going through with it”(Swanson 33). 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.
Lincoln had many people that tried to assassinate him. There was only one that succeeded in killing Lincoln. He was careful with his methods and process. John Wilkes Booth was the man that killed Abraham Lincoln at Ford 's Theater. Nine months before Lincoln was assassinated someone else tried to kill Lincoln in August of 1864.
Obviously John Wilkes Booth’s mission was to Kidnap or assassinate lincoln. While Lincoln and the american government were trying to rebuild the union and our country. They were also trying to free the slaves. While the Conspirators were trying to tear apart the American Government. There are many tough parts to the book but obviously the worst one would easily be when Abraham Lincoln was shot in the back of the head by John Wilkes Booth.
U.S vs. Nixon In 1972 former U.S senator and representative Richard M. Nixon ran for re-election and was opted to win. On June 17, 1972 members of Nixon 's Committee to Re-Elect the president (known as CREEP) broke into Watergate headquarters and stole top secret documents and bugged phone lines.

With regards to the cacophony of disarray and doubt cause by the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, one indisputable fact remains true today: JFK was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. Despite over a half century of official and unofficial investigations, though, there has never been an irrefutable answer as to who actually shot the president on that fateful fall afternoon in 1963. While the formal report liberated by the Warren commission affirmed that Lee Harvey Oswald was the “lone gunman” when he shot the president, not everyone seems to trust it. Over the years, the world has apprehended remarkable stories about magic bullets, about international hit squads, and about shadowy intelligence agencies - both foreign
Oswald’s resentment toward authority was his most prominent motivation to murder the President. He demonstrated this resentment for various times in his life. For instance, Palmer McBride, a man Oswald met in the 1950s revealed that Oswald disclosed to him about shooting President Eisenhower for exploiting the American working class. In addition, nine month prior to his assassination of President Kennedy, he also attempted to assassinate Major General Edwin A. Walker upon the belief that the major general was a fascist leader. Furthermore, at 1:15pm on the day President Kennedy was assassinated, Oswald resisted the arrest from Dallas Police Officer Tippit, which caused him to kill Tippit.
