JOHN WILKES BOOTH—ASSASSIN IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Because Booth was a celebrity (and photogenic: he was hailed as the most handsome man in America), this program can supply a rich record of his world: his famous but troubled family, his career in the mid-19th-century American theater, his ardently expressed white supremacist beliefs, his reasons for hating Lincoln, his clandestine wartime activities (spying and smuggling for the Confederacy), his 12 days on the run, and the nation’s reaction to his deed. Note: some racist language quoted.
