The Conspirator

My brother from another mother, TS, posted this trailer on this site and I just had to re-post it here. It really looks terrific. I love anything about the Civil War and consider myself almost an expert on the subject.

This post Lincoln assassination story revolves around the conspiracy (or lack of one) that was responsible for Lincolns death. The government of the time was not convinced that Booth acted alone and cast their net wide in order to find others to blame for the killing of the President. Many innocent people got caught up in the investigation. Watch the trailer and tell me what you think.

It looks like it has possibilities.

I hadn't even heard of it till last week, but it just looks flat out good.

I didn't know about that. If Oliver Stone had been alive back then the conspiracy theory would have had real legs. I imagine an immensely popular traveling show that outlined the conspiracy and potential suspects.

Obviously people have loved a good conspiracy theory for a long long time.
