This is an excellent show, and one of many plots to kill Lincoln. Smithsonian has become a go to channel for me, I watch all their programs and record them to skip through commercials. I don't care for "reality" TV but love shows like this, some brain food with the entertainment.

Really interesting video. Thank you for sharing Carrie.
(Kit I envy the fact that you get the Smithsonian Channel, although I don't always get control of the remote if we were able to get it).

Lincoln caused the greatest slaughter of Americans in our history. Lincoln suspended habeas corpus, jailed 20,000 people without charges, forcibly shut down hundreds of newspapers that criticized him.He had almost as much contempt for Constitution and the Bill of Rights as Bush or Obama. The utter destruction of civilian roads, houses, and people of the south plunged the south into decades of occupied poverty. The truth is the South was badly overtaxed by the Union and that was the real reason for the civil war much as the original 13 colonies wanted their freedom from King George. But the victor writes the propaganda so all we see is the slavery issue. Slavery was already on the way out with the invention of the cotton gin and it was only a matter of time before it was ended peacefully. Lincoln should go down in history as the man who caused the South to secede so he chose to kill his fellow Americans in the name of “unity.”
