Quotes

Jason McCord: Is that how you want history to end this story? With a senseless murder? John Wilkes Booth shot down a great man. He'll go down in infamy. Edwin Booth... Shot down a dog and he went to the gallows for it. Well, what's it to be... tragedy or some cheap catch-penny melodrama? The last act is up to you, Edwin Booth.

A History Lesson
17 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Until I watched this, I didn't know about this other stuff surrounding Lincoln's death. Granted, it was fictionalized, but I must admit that watching this episode got me to researching. It was amazing to see the background of John F. Parker and Edwin Booth. I don't remember ever learning that stuff in school, but maybe I wasn't paying attention that day...

I love the talent these old shows had of bringing in historical characters and shining light on the evils that they probably lived with. For instance, we know that John F. Parker was an untrustworthy employee and should have never been allowed to go to Ford's Theater to protect Abraham Lincoln that night. How would history had been changed if some more competent man would have guarded our President? Yet, at the end of this episode you can see the torture the man has to live with for the rest of his life. I'm surprised he WASN'T gunned down...

And Edwin Booth...It seems that I did hear something about John Wilke Booth's brother who spent the rest of his life trying to live down the reputation he received thanks to his brother's misdeeds...

Of course the writer's always had Jason saying the wittiest stuff, and this was no exception. Jason's monologue at the end was great!
