Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Upon this day of celebration allow me to underscore the importance of harmony. Which I look look forward to experiencing with malice to non and peace to all peace that includes a new chapter in our country? Treat one in which all men are free. This was the ultimate vision of our founding fathers. A land of promise to to all those who are colored may also enjoy the opportunity to work for a fair wage and receive an education. Now by God I'll put him through. Let this be the less speech he ever makes. Unfortunately the young crazed man in the crowd that day John Wilkes booth made certain to see his promise. Come to pass booth was a well known actor and confederate spy from Maryland though he never ever joined the confederate army he had contacts with the confederate secret service booth and his own brother bickered bitterly over John's zealous rhetoric to the point. Where they eventually we stopped speaking? I do not understand what you take such human issue with him. John and I cannot see how you do. Not here's a man tasked with the heaviest burdens decent by all accounts decent. That man's appearance his pedigree is course low jokes and anecdotes his vulgar assemblies in his policy or a disgrace grace to the seat. He holds the anger. Watch boy within you as you go on and on about him is only a poisoned to yourself. An unjustified end of various one doc. He's made a hammer of the north wing to crush out slavery. Calm Yourself John. Perhaps it is time for you to go. You do not see what must be brother. Abraham Lincoln can no longer be tolerated in eighteen sixty four booth formulated a plan plan very similar to one of Thomas Conrad previously authorized by the Confederacy. I might add on. The plan was to kidnap Lincoln in exchange for the release of confederate. MM federal prisoners but once booth heard him speak at the White House he redirected his plans and became obsessed with killing the president on April fourteenth and while grabbing his mail at four Deiter booth learned Lincoln would be attending a play there that evening booth gathered a crew of Co conspirators barometers. Their goal was to assassinate Secretary of State seward Vice President Johnson and President Lincoln and their political aim was to to cut off the head of the union government. Turn the country into chaos and give the confederate army a chance to reorganize and gain power. And it's two thousand in five analysis of Lincoln's assassination. Thomas Goodrich writes all the elements and booths. Nature came together at once his hatred of tyranny. His love all of Liberty is passion for the stage is sense of drama and is lifelong quest to become immortal. Lincoln had premonitions of his impending death breath telling his good friend and biographer Ward Hill. Amman I had a dream about ten days ago ward there seemed to be a death like stillness about me. Then I heard the subdued sobs as if a number of people were weeping. I wanted downstairs. I went went from room to room hearing the weepy. I kept on until I arrived at the one which rested a corpse wrapped in Futaba investments. Around it were stationed soldiers who were acting as guards who is dead in the White House. I demanded of one of the soldiers. The president puts his head Sir he was killed. By necess- Lincoln had three other dreams like this and shared them with his bodyguard. William H Crook. Who became gravely worried? Lincoln was seeing his future on Good Friday April fourteenth. Eighteen sixty five Lincoln decided to attend a play at Ford's theatre theater. I implore you not to attend. Tonight's performance Mr President. I feel ill about it and I cannot be by your side this evening. I promise Mary we would attend my dual roles as commander in chief and husband often stretched me in opposing directions. Tonight it shall be the direction of Herp Lisi. You are far more decent than most. I have known Sir Nonsense Crook we all hail from the same design. I'm no better than the next. Well the hour is upon me. Goodbye William Crooke later recalled. It was the first time that he neglected to say good night to me. It was the only time that he ever never said goodbye. Lincoln attended to play with Mary. Major Henry Rathbone and his fiancee Clara. John Wilkes booth waited for Lincoln to take his seat in the presidential box than in a cruel twist of events. Lincoln stand in bodyguard left to drink at a saloon. During the intermission he was late. Returning booth size opportunity. He snuck up to the boxes because he was a regular performer. At the Ford Theatre workers there gave his comings and goings as little thought at ten. Fifteen booth shot the president point blank in the head with a forty four caliber. Single Shot Derringer. rathbone immediately jumped at booth but booth staffed and booth then leapt down onto the stage and some heard him say six separate around tennis. I have done it. Self is avenged. Six semper tyrannus means thus to all tyrants in reference to Brutus who assassinated Julius Caesar it is also the motto on Virginia State Flag when booth leapt on stage. Some of the audience thought it was part of the performance Monte Young Doctrine. The audience heard Mary Mary. Todd scream in rushed up to the presidential suite. He found Lincoln slumped in his chair paralyzed and barely breathing. President Lincoln was whisked away to a house across the street from the theater where he slipped into a coma the following morning seven twenty two on April. Fifteen Abraham Lincoln tied tide. Edward Curtis an army surgeon in attendance. Recounted that a bullet clattered into a basin during the doctor's removal of it from Lincoln's brain. But the team stopped and stared at it. Curtis said this bullet the cause of such mighty changes in the world's history as we may perhaps never realize Abraham Lincoln ultimately succeeded in keeping the United States of America. Together as one and catalyzing idolizing the end of the eroneous and horrific chapter of slavery in our country the burdens and losses throughout the course of his life. We're heavy the times almost unbearable but nevertheless he persevered keep in your mind and heart the next time you feel failure or giving up one of the greatest greatest presidents of our country just like you and chose to keep going in doing so. He paved the ultimate step of progress for the United States of America half and carved out his own destiny. So what is your destiny. You can only find out if you persevere.
