July 7 1865 Lincoln Assasins Hung

While actor John Wilkes Booth succeeded in his deranged mission of assassinating President Abraham Lincoln near the end of the Civil War, several other conspirators were not so successful – and were hanged because of it.

On July 7, 1865 four conspirators - Lewis Powell, David Herold, George Atzerodt, and Mary Surratt - were hanged by the neck at Fort McNair in Washington, D.C. 

Their deaths were a culmination of sorts of a nation ravaged by war, bitter conflict, and the death of the nation's commander-in-cheif, the Great Emancipator.
