John Wilkes Booth was passionate about the performing arts, and began acting when he was a young man. #performingarts #johnwilkesbooth #arts #tour #touring #history @t_p_tours

Had some business downtown today - and stopped in to Hotel Lincoln, which is one of the cutest hotels to-boot in the city. Such an eclectic vibe of vintage charm - bold, bright, with massively good juju. Like literally, if you’re all out of juju, go there and you’ll be filled to the brim with quintessential, old-school Chicago goodness. @hotellincoln #vintagedecor #vintage #oldschool #chicago #vintagechicago #chicagopix #mychicago #chitown #hotels #hotellincoln #history #lincoln #abrahamlincoln #fordtheater #johnwilkesbooth #cityvibes #choosechicago #windycity #thisischicago #windycityvibes #tuesdayvibes #lakemichiganlove #lincolnpark #arlingtonheights #actionheights #jaunt #jauntchicago

This is the gun used to assassinate President Lincoln. Part of a series exploring gun violence and fetishism in America. The gun is printed on pages of books about Lincoln, then cut up, turned on their sides, and organized to reform the image of the gun (you’re looking at edges of book pages). .

My very 1st attempt at an historical scene for Bones (2013?). I told myself I would not show this until I tweaked it, but it's Presidents Day, so.... Notice just how stiff (no pun intended) everybody's limbs are. Hadn't figured out the engineering yet. Also, paper hair. I do like the flag drape around the box and Mary Todd looks pretty good! Especially her flower wreath. Forgive the crude nature, but I really was trying to capture the moment before history changed forever (aka John Wilkes Booth). #americanhistory #presidentsday #presidents #abrahamlincoln #lincoln #marytoddlincoln #johnwilkesbooth #assassination #history #historical #skeleton #bones #fordstheatre #abelincoln #booth #miniature #miniatures #historyinminiature #dioramas #diorama

In the spirit of this #holiday I think we should spend a week learning about some of these #scumbag #presidents & #foundingfathers #lincoln wanted nothing to do with the #plight of the #slaves & had #planned to send every #blackamerican to #liberia which had been setup just for that purpose decades earlier.Thats why the #liberian #flag looks so #similar to the #unitedstates flag. Lincoln set #slaves in the #south free only to be a #burden to & #hinder the movement of the #rebelarmy He never set #free #northernslaves. So #racistpigs have only one person to #blame for #africanamericans still being here.. one of your #heroes #johnwilkesbooth #😹😹😹😹 #realhistory

Happy Presidents' Day!! Just a little fun imagining what a presidential selfie taken at Ford's Theatre might look like accomplished in ink, pencil, and Photoshop! Too soon? Remember, it was ol' honest Abe who once said, "You can trust anything that's on the internet." . .

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."
---- Abraham Lincoln

Next Monday celebrates both Lincoln and Washington's birthdays as a federal holiday.
But, today, we’re wishing a happy birthday to the U.S.’s 16th president, Abraham Lincoln born on #ThisDayinHistory 1809. He served in the Illinois legislature from 1834 to 1836, and then became an attorney. In 1842, Lincoln married Mary Todd and together, the pair raised four sons. Lincoln returned to politics during the 1850s, a time when the nation’s long-standing division over slavery was flaring up, particularly in new territories being added to the Union. As leader of the new Republican Party, Lincoln was considered politically moderate, even on the issue of slavery. He advocated the restriction of slavery to the states in which it already existed and described the practice in a letter as a minor issue as late as 1854. In an 1858 senatorial race, as secessionist sentiment brewed among the southern states, he warned, a house divided against itself cannot stand. He did not win the Senate seat but earned national recognition as a strong political force. Lincoln’s inspiring oratory soothed a populace anxious about southern states’ secessionist threats and boosted his popularity. Lincoln is remembered as The Great Emancipator. Although he waffled on the subject of slavery in the early years of his presidency, his greatest legacy was his work to preserve the Union and his signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. To Confederate sympathizers, however, Lincoln’s signing of the Emancipation Proclamation reinforced his image as a hated despot and ultimately led John Wilkes Booth to assassinate him on April 14, 1865. His favorite horse, Old Bob, pulled his funeral hearse.

Lincoln: Lincoln's Final Hours is now in paperback! Kathryn Caravan, former independent researcher and freelance writer for USA Today and the Philadelphia Inquirer, provides a fast-paced account not only furnishes a glimpse into John Wilkes Booth’s personal and political motivations but also illuminates the stories of ordinary people whose lives were changed forever by the assassination. Through her careful narration of the twists of fate that placed the president in harm’s way, of the plotting conversations Booth had with his accomplices, and of the immediate aftermath of the assassination, Canavan illustrates how the experiences of a single night changed the course of history. #lincoln #abrahamlincoln #lincolnday #assasination #johnwilkesbooth #fordstheatre #civilwar
