In Search Of... "The Lincoln Conspiracy" (1981)

Everyone knows that John Wilkes Booth killed President Lincoln and a lot of people know that many others were found guilty and hanged because of conspiracy. This episode takes a look at a few alternate theories including if Booth killed himself instead of being shot by a soldier. Also discussed are the people who were arrested after the fact and if some of them might have been innocent while the real guilty party got away. This is certainly one of the better episodes in the series but there's nothing new that you're going to learn. The story itself is just one of the most captivating that you'll ever read or see so it makes sense that this episode would be so good.
