Great men, falls by treason and conspiracy! Tell us a story of assassination, treason and crime...
Poor Old Abe...
Booth on the stage.
This MOC depicts the assassination of President Aberham Lincoln by Famous Confederate Actor John Wilkes Booth, Whilst he was watching Our American Cousin in Ford's Theater.. Booth broke into the presidents balcony, and under the cover of the loud luaghing of the Audience, he fired a shot into Abe's head from point blank range. He then leaped onto the stage and proclaimed, "Sic Sempur Tyrannis!" Which is Latin for "Thus always upon tyrants!"
Abe died the next day, and booth was apprehended ten days later.
I've sat in Ford's Theater and looked up to the balcony where the fateful event occured. John Wilkes Booth apparently got his foot caught in a curtain while jumping down. I would have liked to see that. I liked your arches technique, though. 3 points.
