Join the hunt for the most famous assassin in American history.

From the fateful balcony in Ford's Theatre to Dr. Samuel Mudd's remote home to the fiery showdown in a Virginia farmhouse, experience firsthand the suspenseful, breakneck search for America's first presidential assassin. Discover the awesome reach of his conspiracy, which had further targeted Vice President Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State William Seward in a bid to undermine the U.S. Government and give the Confederacy a second chance.

No man had ever been hunted with greater fervor. Ten thousand federal troops, detectives and police hunted those responsible for assassinating President Lincoln. While his conspirators were rounded up and brought to justice, Booth himself denied the authorities the satisfaction of a trial, going out in a blaze of infamy.

In exacting detail and with captivating drama, THE HISTORY CHANNEL® recruits you for the HUNT FOR JOHN WILKES BOOTH!
