  1. A fascinating take on a famous event in history.

  2. Ruth,

    very, very creative! I do like the way you captured the language of 19th-century journalism.

  3. Love it! Of course I’m a Lincoln “fan” too! You are very creative!

  5. Thank you so much!

    Lincoln’s assassination is one of those events that really changed the future, that makes you think… what if Booth’s gun had jammed… what if he couldn’t get the door to the presidential box open… what if Maj Rathbone had turned at the sound of the door opening… what if?

    This is such a great topic for the Carnival!

  6. Ruth:

    Now this is good, very good. You are so creative! How could anyone top this?
