Bloody Times By: Lara patel
Abraham Lincoln was shot in Fords Theater on April 14, 1865 while he was watching the play "Our American Cousin", and was shot between 10:15 PM and 10:30 PM. The shooter John Wilkes Booth had escaped but he was later captured. On April 15, 1865 Lincoln died at 7:22 AM. This is important because Lincoln was our president at the time when he was shot and there was no security there to guard him.
