"The South definitely went to war to keep slavery going but did the actually go to the war to end slavery. No no they did not. This is another common myth. The North went to war initially and primarily to just hold the nation together not to free southern slaves. That's an important difference. You know so so get off your High Horse. Yankees await a I gotta get off. My High Horse. Evidence shows that abolition became a bigger and bigger motivation as the war went on but not in its early years There's proof August twenty second eighteen sixty two president. Lincoln wrote a letter to Horace Greeley abolitionist editor of the New York. Tribune stated if I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it and if I could save by free all the sleeps I would do it. And if I can save by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that what I do about slavery in the colored race I do because I believe it helps to save the Union and what I forbear forbear because I do not believe it. I do not believe it would help to save the Union. So Lincoln's own anti sediment was widely known this time so widely known that it helped prompt the southern states to rebel in that same letter he wrote. I have hosted my purpose. According to my view of official duty and I attend no modification of my off express. Personal wish that all men everywhere could be free. So Lincoln was concerned. You know that making the war about abolition would anger northern unionists. Many of whom cared little about African Americans? He wanted to free them personally. But that wasn't his primary political motivation for the war. The whole notion of the north where the obvious goodguys nobly fighting against slavery in the south of the obvious billons hoping to keep Africans. Enslaved forever is overly simplistic and just not true. Not all southerners wanted to hold onto the institution of Slavery. Not all northerners gave a shit about the rights of African Americans just like we can all agree and political candidates and political issues. Now we couldn't back then either. Wealthy southern landowners were in favor of slavery. Of course it helped them build your wealth. It helps keep them rich. But if you are some poor southern White sharecropper why the hell would you be in favor of slavery? The plantations are helping to keep you poor by not having to pay you a fair wage to farm. Because they're having someone else do it who doesn't get any wage some in the south didn't care about keeping slavery live and they're planning the north who didn't care about ending it segregation following the civil war not stopping at. The Dixon Line proves that schools the north were openly segregated shopkeepers. Indeed displayed whites only signs after the war even celebrities such as former suck subject Josephine Baker right decades after had a hard time finding hotel rooms and face Jim Crow treatment in restaurants when they toured the north. So why did Lincoln Push to free? Slaves towards the end of the war will because by late eighteen sixty two. It became clear that ending slavery in the rebellion states would definitely help the war effort whenever US forces drew near African Americans flocked to their lines to help the war effort to make a living most of all to be free. Some Lincoln generals helped him see early on that. Sending them back into slavery would just help the confederate war. 'cause when it became obvious that freeing the slaves would help the Union win the war unite the nation then. Abolition became a primary motivation for the war of the North For the North Another important Mr Squash regarding civil war. It was a douse of African Americans. Both free and slaves fought on the side of the confederacy neo. Confederates have made arguments since about one thousand nine hundred and outside of a very small group of soldiers in their final weeks of the war. It's bullshit one reason. We know it's bullshit is a confederate policy flatly. Did Not let black become soldiers until March of nineteen eight or March of Eighteen. Sixty five no documentation whatsoever exist for any black man being paid pension as a confederate soldier. There are some altered photos floating around the propelled. Smith a looked into one altered photograph considered by many to be evidence of black confederate soldiers. However University of Virginia researchers found out it had been intentionally cropped and mislabeled the photograph of Union soldiers not confederate once white officers did bring slaves to the front you know for the confederacy were. They were pressed into service but doing laundry and cooking. Some confederate leaders did try to enlist African Americans but it was shot down in January eighteen sixty four confederate general Patrick Cleburne or claburn proposed filling the ranks of black men. When Jefferson Davis reportedly heard that suggestion he rejected. The idea ordered. This subject dropped and never brought up again in the closing weeks. General Robert E Lee was desperate for men. He asked the confederate government to approve allowing the slave men to serve in exchange for some form of post war freedom This time the government gave in but very few black signed up in the in. The war was soon over and of course very few signed up. I can't imagine any signing up. Who aren't either forced to do so by their owners or mentally ill. Why would she do that? I'm signing up the war baby. Those no them bastards win. We'll be free not on my watch. No Sir Are we supposed to do? Their freedom? Enjoys go to bed when we decided try and do southern. We actually might enjoy for work. No thank you you can take that personal fulfillment and destiny ownership. Showed up your well-intentioned Yankee. S another Mr. On his civil war slavery was on his way out and had the war not been fought. It would've just soon anyway Slavery was hardly on his last legs. Nineteen sixty in the south that year the south produced almost seventy five percent of all US exports on the Labor of nearly four million slaves. According to some historians slaves were valued as being worth more than all of the manufacturing companies and railroads in the nation. No elite class in history has ever given up. Such an immense interest voluntarily in eighteen sixty slavery was actually growing more entrenched in the south not going away. Unpaid Labor made for big profits and the southern elite were growing ever richer. Slavery's institutional nature essentially crowded out other economic development and left the south dependent on agricultural society. Okay so now. We're almost the timeline They'll take key events leading directly to the civil war and through the war itself including. Oh seventy battles before we do that. Since we now know that the issue slavery was the primary reason for the war. Let's take a look at the history of slavery You know in in American a little bit elsewhere. Little mini timelines slash overview before. Today's big time line The history of African Shuttle Slavery in America complicated and tied to the larger transatlantic slave trade and requires a suck unto itself to properly understand but we can learn a lot today here in a little bit of racial slavery. Didn't happen in the colonies overnight. It wasn't limited to the south. It was a slow. Gradual process. Started out with non-racial indentured servitude and through a little law. Here the legal precedent there it. Morphed solidly into racial slavery directed towards Africans over roughly a century time slavery in America started in sixteen nineteen the year before the mayflower brought the pilgrims when the privateer the White Line brought twenty African slaves ashore in the British colony of Jamestown Virginia. The crew had seized the Africans from the Portuguese slave slip shit slave ship Sao Joao Batista. They were the first African seized by slave traders to arrive in one of the American colonies. But the but it would be indentured. Servitude they wouldn't be lifelong slaps. The African slave trade has started over one hundred fifty years earlier in fourteen forty four with the first public sale of African slaves occurring in Lagos or Logos Portugal Portuguese way into slavery. They also soon had Japanese and Chinese. Slaves began trading with those nations also in the early years. Most of a their slavery was indentured servitude and it was not limited to foreigners a wealthy Portuguese landowner could have white Asian and black indentured servants. The only group they wouldn't enslave was you guessed it a post people So Nice police. We try to stick themselves into slavery situations. They pretend to be some kind of white human but the Portuguese would always be able to spot them because they'd be doing stuff like Like sweeping the floor using the handle end of the broom or or DIG UP. See Out of the ground instead of you know instead of platinum. You know that kind of stuff you get it. Jk Fourteen fifty five Pope Nicholas. V gave Portugal to rights to continue the slave trade in west Africa under the provisions that they convert all people. Who are enslaved Good job pope very godly. The pope just wants to let her know that is in favor of slavery but die. Slaves muscles must be Christian. If there's one thing that really chaps the gods ass it is a pagan slave amen and carry on and so forth You have a weird. The pope's I I fucking go for fourteen. Ninety two Portuguese star building a into their first permanent slave trading post at El Mina Gold Coast now Ghana.

Catholic state firmly bonding to nations and in fifteen twelve team affonso. The first negotiated an agreement with the Portuguese giving them rights to African land and direct access to Congo's prisoners of war. Who would be the first live sold specifically into the Trans Atlantic slave trade also fair to point out? The slavery was not new to Africa when the Portuguese began doing what they did in African. Kingdoms slavery been around for centuries before this agreement but it wasn't like what it would be in the American south a few centuries later it was not permanent and it was not inherited. Children OF SLAVES. Were not automatically. Enslaved King Affonso arrangement provided a model that other European nations in Western and Central African Kingdoms. Would follow for centuries the first people sold again. We know mostly prisoners of War African kings but this time often in conflict often Absorbing smaller nations or other groups into themselves the vast ethnic linguistic and religious diversity in these kingdoms allowed for easily identifiable differences among groups make an easier for kingdoms to sell their enemies in exchange for weapons and goods to expand and protect territories grand empires such as the Congo Rubel of Benin Asante were vying for wealth and power in the regions and Europeans were need of laborers to build their colony so they may deals goods traded for people and that wasn't new to Africa.

"At the first woman ever executed in United States history for crime had been hosting the meetings between booth and his conspirators in her tavern. President Lincoln was a controversial figure when he signed the emancipation proclamation, but he transformed into a beloved martyr and American hero overnight in death Lincoln was far more popular than he'd ever been in life. If booths motivation as some have speculated was to inspire the south to rebel once more upon Lincoln's death, then his plan failed utterly in light of Lincoln's unpopularity prior to his death. We must ask if others besides booth might have conspired to eliminate an incredibly powerful in widely distrusted leader factions in either the confederate or union governments may have allied with John Wilkes booth in his assassination attempt that brings us to our conspiracy theories conspiracy theory, number one booth didn't act alone, but was working for the confederate government, possibly even. Under the orders of their president Jefferson Davis. So soon after the end of the civil war confederate loyalist would have been desperate to resist Lincoln led government given boost ties to the confederate secret services. This one's a possibility. Conspiracy theory number two secretary of war Stanton aided booth in the assassination or in his escape as part of an attempted coup Stanton's initial actions in the early hours after booth shot. Lincoln closing the roads out of DC and publicly calling for boosts arrest were both too late to prevent boosts escape Stanton may have conspired with booth helping him escape and later ordering his troops to kill booth before he could be questioned conspiracy theory number three vice president Andrew Johnson's lost for power coupled with disagreements about governance style led Johnson to eliminate Lincoln. So that he could seize the presidency. For himself. In theory, union leaders wanted Lincoln out of the way so that Andrew Johnson could take over and finally our wildcard theory booth faked his own death and lived under an assumed identity for decades after Lincoln's death, president Lincoln left a lasting legacy on the US. In the words of President, George W Bush, Lincoln's voice was silenced. But he more than any other American has spoken to all the ages and his words have haunted and driven our history. But as that history what we thought next week. We'll take another look. Thanks for tuning into conspiracy theories. If you want.

"All right. So we're all in agreement that the Lieutenant governor should be encouraged to step down Virginia had a bit of year last week. One more quick thing before we get outta here. As you all know earlier this week our governor admitted to wearing black face and college is part of a costume. It suffered embarrassments than later. The attorney general also admitted to wearing black face college as part of a costume after embarrassments. It's extremely embarrassing to the state became the laughing stock of the country, and as chair of the ethics committee. I have to ask has any body else. Glad face in college got its own SNL sketch. But what if the cost you wanna contests? The contents black face, but Christie Coleman says this isn't just a Virginia thing, this is a national problem menstrual C and all of that. It was something that the entire country participated in and we see the really the birth of popular black face as an entertainment form actually getting it started in New York City. She spoke to me from the American civil war museum in Richmond Virginia which she runs for Virginians. It is more painful perhaps simply because it is something that has come to the fore. When Virginia has worked been working so hard to be a tad more progressive in, oh, this is a state that has a very mixed economy. It has urban centers that are extraordinarily diverse. And so this slide backward from a figure or figures that people have presumed were. Part of that March forward is the jarring part. For the uninitiated from what exactly is Virginia moving forward. Virginia is preparing to commemorate three key events that happened in sixteen nineteen. The first of those being the first Representative government. The second of those being the arrival of women and the third, of course is the arrival of Africans in sixteen nineteen. They are brought here against their will. And they are sold to be put to work in the colony by the seventeen hundreds of course, slavery is very much entrenched in Virginia even into the eve of the American revolution Virginia at that point is forty percent people have African descent so the whole questions will idea that almoner created equal endowed by their creator all of that is born in Virginia and yet born in a place where even the man who writes those words isn't enslave her. But there are also been people who have resisted it from the beginning. And that's part of the story that often gets missed. We get into the eighteen hundreds it takes two votes for Virginia to determine whether or not it's actually going to succeed when they do. See the decision is made to move the confederate government to Virginia because she has this legacy of independence revolution. But it is also the second largest intrastate slave trading. Port in Richmond to the point where today about forty percent of African Americans. Could in fact, Trason ancestor that was sold from Virginia to points further south. So this is our this is our history our legacy what did things like for black Virginians during the civil rights era. They are doing the same thing that black people are doing throughout the south. They are boycotting. They are asserting their rights to vote the differences. You're not seeing the same level of violence that you saw in the deep south of Mississippi and Alabama and Georgia that well. Instead, you saw things that were tad more insidious rather than allowing for for example, the schools to be desegregated, we'll just shut down the schools, and then they'll transfer the money into private Christian schools. And that's what happens a lot of private schools that get started in the state are actually started as a form of massive resistance by whites who don't want to integrate their school. So that's part of Virginia's history elementary affective schools, which white colored children make and Pell job in to all seen any funds from the brighter while up, right? The transition. Gan in the seventies. With governor hope I love affair with Richmond public schools began when I was a twelve year old Niger had Linwood.

The US congress his motives were complicated. He believes session was just an extreme form of nullification, which is hero. Andrew Jackson had fought against in the eighteen thirties. But he also knew that the leaders of the new confederacy were his political enemies, and he'd likely have little influence in the confederate government. If you join them his loyalty to the union brought him a level of prominence in politics, and led to his choice as Lincoln's running mate in eighteen sixty four putting a war democrat on the ticket. With Republican Lincoln was a perfect way to illustrate Lincoln's coalition of supporters from across the political spectrum. But after Lincoln's assassination, the coalition faltered Republicans had majorities in both chambers of congress. They had expected to work closely with Republican president to rebuild the country after the war. Instead in Johnson, they faced a southern democrat who had personally owned slaves just three years before still many Republicans were optimist about John.

There will be no trouble now running this government. Those who proved to be fateful words. Once an office Johnson began moving away from his more radical positions of previous years with the war over his views toward the south grew more, lenient and forgiving. It was one thing to talk off when he was the military governor of Tennessee using War Powers to put down a rebellion. But once the war was over and he found himself in the White House. His lifelong commitment to states rights reasserted itself. Liken before him Johnson didn't believe succession was legal by this line of thinking southern states had never actually left the union but were instead simply in rebellion. So once the rebellion was put down and loyal leaders were in place, reconstruction was affected finished and state's rights could be reasserted Johnson used Congress's long recess during the summer and fall eighteen sixty five to enact his own more lenient policies of reconstruction. His goal was to return the southern states to self-government as quickly as possible to further that end and to the irradiation of many Republicans he gave pardons to many confederate leaders who petitioned him this included Alexander Stevens, former vice president of a confederacy without congressional involvement. But with Johnson's approval southern states had a lot of leeway in rebuilding their governments congress had explicitly outlawed slavery with the thirteenth amendment ratified before Lincoln's death. But in an effort to get around those. Restrictions southern states resorted to so-called black codes these were sets of laws aimed at restricting the rights of African Americans and compelling them to work for low wages or even as indentured. Servants Republican saw the codes as little more than a return to slavery and Bolden by Johnson's leniency..

The former slave now became legally free during the final two years of the war close to one hundred and eighty thousand black troops with sort of the union. There's still was full equality, of course, as we know about our history. You know, black soldiers were paid ten dollars a month with a three dollar deduction for the cost of uniform while white soldiers were paid thirteen dollars a month and didn't pay for the uniform. This was eventually fixed where both white and black soldiers were paid the same and black soldiers were given back pay for the amount they were paid less.

"You Michael play host my collie Johns Hopkins discussing. The, new American civil war the presentation today posit is that we are engaged in. The new American civil war it's happened now and it will continue to happen for some, time how long Michael, a good evening to you I've recently had a, conversation with Adrian Goldsworthy who's. New book is on Hadrian's wall built by Hadrian and his successors Antonio Antonio as well but it lasted until today you can see it when, you travel Great Britain in the. Course of the Roman empire however Hadrian's wall was often a turning point for the power of. Governors in. Britain I learned in. Addition that after a certain period and the one that's looked to most especially. As septicemia severance this is late second century. After a certain period what happened in, in Rome Was that emperor is no longer were were sovereign in the. Roman, empire that there were always challenges to emperors and there were sometimes two or. Three or four people claiming the title at once septicemia severance is noteworthy however because of, the lesson he gave, to his two sons upon his death he said, to them love one another Be good. To the army and despise. Hate distrust everyone else that became, the watchword, for them one brother quickly murdered the other one in the in the in the civil war that launched immediately upon septicemia is death and? That civil war carried on for several hundred more years Rome Roman, empire was more in civil war, than it, was instability I learned from, Adrian Goldsworthy so my question to you tonight Michael is is that a possible outcome of the civil war that I posit were now in will we stay in civil war for several hundred years and until we become a legend and were replaced by. Another, empire good evening to you evening John you know that is a tough. Question but I I, have to say Listening to the sort of anecdotal framing that you offer that severe assist son Caracalla was the Roman emperor who offered citizenship to everyone in the empire showing how. Degraded citizenship had become that it meant nothing and so in a. Sense symbolically that can be. Offered as a kind of a, benchmark of, how the sort of forces or rather the EAP attraction within society that held Rome together had had begun seriously the come apart in the? Early third century and this is a key to I think looking, again metaphorically the United States today, because if, you look at the entirety, of the, American experience up to Now there has been, since the founding of of of, this nation, an understanding a Compaq that elite society, those who would in effect be the the makers and the the center You know to us George W Bush's term the deciders of the direction that the country would be taking that that that that elite group would be to some important central. Extent a unified body, that in other words There was an agreement a ratified and implemented through the constitution that essentially laid out the notion that however many different directions American groups might go and no matter how deep the divisions might be between, political parties that essentially Socially and politically the American, elite was one and you can even see that in the period of of the civil war where America split. Apart into literally two separate independent nations both recognized as the south was in defacto terms by France and Britain and then coming together after the defeat. Of the confederacy in such a way that members of the confederate leap many of them who had been at the center of of of confederate government were in effect reabsorbed into the sleep that the elite came together again and what I'm concerned about today is that The split that we have between two different visions of American life in American identity is. Not simply irreconcilable but that the compact itself As a an existential bedrock that everyone at some deep level subscribes to has been lost and I think that's where, the metaphor third century Rome comes into play because if you look at the tapestry of Rome through the, Republic and early empire up Basically until septicemia severe you have a relatively unified elite. And what began to happen in the, third century of course is that you had a big search of of of senators from places like Greece and Helen this To have a Gallic empire quite separate from. Rome Absolutely and so therefore you began to have new identities that were far removed from Rome and that. Assault eventually to become, their own little Roman. Centers and so you know the word is precipitous it's coming apart and and that process of coming apart became the major dynamic of the Roman empire after say the the to thirties right around. Two thirty and it lasted until the Roman empire as we understand it at literally come apart. About say two and a half to three centuries, so let's put. It into twenty first century America then we could we can make a case that America has already come apart that we, have parties or factions within parties that are regional what we're called sectional during the civil war and that their self self-satisfied in being Separate that we have different interpretations. Of the constitution that we can divide the nation, between blue and. Red or between coast and flyover or between nationalists and globalist and they're not looking to amend their ways they're looking to, be separate empires the the the essence again as as I tried to present it In our conversations about this notion of of an. American civil war is that nothing has happened yet that can't be taken, back but that is not really the relevant benchmark to say and we'll certainly not concede to the other side. And therefore the basis for comedy for a unified social and political compact is is really before our very eyes coming apart and if it has not yet reached the point of violent events it it doesn't take away from, the fact that the commitment of people to different states of being has already. Happened and, therefore what, we, can expect in in the years ahead Is a process of gradual coming apart separation Mark by by conflict. And by a process of how can I put it of of national, dissolution potentially because there is no countervailing dynamic at work that would pull the nation as a whole together that. Would say hey we're all Americans we've got to come together That, has now become that sentiment that we're all Americans that has now become a kind of. Tosseh off phrase kind of sentimentality, invoked rhetorically but that has no serious intent any longer I wanna speak to present a example, buckle of how we're going to be tested? The term regicide. Has bite you associated with Shakespeare but there's a rolling registered right now, in major newspapers and television presentations about President Trump and so when we come back what will that regicide if it continues on the course that is chosen by the blue side what will that bring for America in future, I'm, John Batchelor this. Is the John Batchelor show.

"Hundred seventy seven, holy shit longest serving Republican Senator in US. History dude has been in the sentence. Jimmy Carter was president. I gotta say it looks good. It looks like it takes care of himself better than I do probably is less torito's probably drinks less red bull impressive. So why did booth want the secretary state killed? Well. I, I remember he's not accurate nationally. He just wants to hurt the north. Now the war's essentially over the motive for his original kidnapping. You know, to kind of negotiate things for the confederate government doesn't make sense anymore right after not after the surrender of generally. He has to understand that on some level. He's not a fool, he's angry and he wants to inflict pain on the union and the fans union than his mind have caused well, not in his mind that have caused so much pain to certain people in the south secretary of State. William Seward was also a strong figure for the north during and before the civil war who was stanchly anti-slavery speak abolitionist. So Seward was a determined opponent of slavery and the spread of slavery for years before the war. He actually was initially the favored candidate for the Republican nomination for president and the eighteen sixty election that Lincoln one. But he became so vocally anti-slavery that the party didn't think he was electable leading up to the civil war. He was also very vocally anti-secession. So basically he represented everything that booth hated and boots. These these men. As true tyrants as oppressors of the south. And again, to be fair, you know, to booth union was pretty brutal and their treatment of the south, like in some respects, specially with their belief in total war of, you know, that term union army general William to come to sherman's infamous March to the sea from Atlanta to Savannah, Georgia, for example, in November and December eighteen sixty four was was part of the total war plan where you destroy the resources required for the south to make war. So when you go through to a town, you don't just, you know, get rid of all the enemy troops. You also destroy like all of the food. You burn down anything that could be used to like manufacturer, weapons of war. Even if it's like civilian property, you ruined roads. You blow up bridges to try and destroy the confederacies. Konami is transportation. Networks, you burn plantations to the ground, you know called- civilian homes were destroyed. There's a lot of collateral damage, family businesses gone families destroy themselves. So if you're southerner some with southern sympathies again, easy to see how you'd feel. A little bit of like, fuck these guys at the war's end. So this restaurant boo tells Lewis Powell that twenty one year old. Well, built former confederate cavalry member met through John Surat the the that he is to murder the secretary of State William Seward that night and booth tells George as rot that he is to murder the vice president, Andrew Johnson, they would have liked to have gotten more guys, but these weren't in the city. You know, like General Grant, they would liked to got him, but he wasn't around. But these these are the. These are the guys who are around that they, they know their whereabouts and they feel like they have a good chance to kill. Let's just really just caused the government to fall into anarchy is I guess, maybe part of his help around eight pm that evening, April fourteenth, the Lincoln's set out for four theater. They pick up a friend, Mary's Clara Harris and her fiance, corporal, Henry Rathbone more on Rathbone. Later in this suck what a very strange twisted post assassination story. He's going to have other more more noted. Guests had turned them down that evening such as house speaker shooter Colfax, who had a departure, California, a few days later General Grant whose wife wanted to visit family in New Jersey..

"Five hundred dollars, and you can only buy them from bojangle's. He's not selling any because use them to pick his teeth after meals, and because they're not real, none as true, but listen to this booth does want to redeem himself for not fighting battle. Initially, he formulates plans to kidnap Lincoln. This is before the vast nation plot. His original plans include kidnapping and kidnapped Lincoln from his summer residence. At the old soldiers home three miles from the White House, smuggling across the Potomac river into Richmond, Virginia. Once in confederate hands, he thinks that Lincoln could be exchanged for confederate army prisoners of war, held in northern prisons and booth reason. You know, this could bring the war to an end by emboldened opposition to the war in the north or by forcing the union to recognize the confederate government. And while this may sound crazy and it certainly was, it wasn't actually that far fetched on idea to be able to kidnap Lincoln. The secret service did not exist in any form until eighteen sixty five. And they didn't be an offering fulltime protection to the president until nineteen. O two, you know, it was kind of up to the presence discretion. If they wanted somebody to kind Gardner not, you know, they, they start guarding the president fulltime following the assassination of another president, president McKinley, nine hundred one. He was assassinated, nine hundred one and the, you know, they offer at nights to Lincoln would sometimes right alone in between the White House and the old soldiers home totally alone. He's a fucking he's president of the union. There's a war going on with other Americans living just a few miles away, and he just hop into the carriage and just go for a little stroll hard for me to maj. Have to me that's like seen Trump Cruz by on a Harley when you're out, nobody guards, no secret service. You know, he imagined that shit. You know, you're, you're walking around DC. I don't know. You're going to get some fucking Jimmy Johns. Then Trump just scoots by and a Harley. Like back in Lincoln, signed presence would just walk into bars. They just walk into restaurants and stuff with without being guarded. You know, it's so so strange, have a gin and tonic and the president of the United States will have a whisky sour. And we'd like some nachos for the table. Hi. I'd like to be put a name to put on the waiting list party of two for the God damn president of the United States. Twenty thirty minute wait. Yeah, that's fine. That's fine boost. Kidnapping plot tastes directly into today's time time line that will lead to both his arrest and to Lincoln's death. Shrapnel no booth soldier where Martin down a time, summertime lie. I say, arrest, I meant death for both. You knew that as part of the story, do already know. He's kind of rested. He wasn't alive when he was wrestling. Okay, January eighteen eighteen sixty five. John Wilkes booth to co conspirators. I plan to kidnap Lincoln on January eighteenth eighteen sixty five..
