President Abraham Lincoln was shot on the night of April 14, 1865. He died the next day, 146 years ago today. This picture is from one of our digitized books on the trial of assassination conspirators.
We have twenty-two digitized items on our Lincoln and the Law site, many of which are books. The site is broken into three sections: Lincoln the Lawyer, Habeas Corpus and the War Powers of the President, and The Assassination: Trials. Kurt went into more detail on our Presidents Day post, Lincoln the Lawyer.
