Synopsis by Kathleen Wildasin

Theories abound as to whether John Wilkes Booth acted alone when he pulled the trigger that killed the 16th President of the United States on April 14, 1865. Was there a conspiracy, a cover-up, or were high-ranking political leaders even involved? Plot to Kill Lincoln is an intriguing documentary that explores the events surrounding the tragic assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Highlights of the 52-minute film include information about the kidnapping and assassination plots that preceded the shocking event, as well as a provocative discussion about the execution of four conspirators -- one of them a woman -- by the U.S. government after Lincoln's death.
