Why Did Abraham Lincoln Get Shot?

Answer

John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865 bascially as an act of revenge for the Civil War. Booth also thought he would be seen as a hero to his confederate freinds, but this did not happen. The country, even southerners, wanted the fighting and killing to stop so there could be healing. Booth was tracked down at the Garrett farm and killed on April 26, 1865. You can find more information here: en.wikipedia.org
