Did a Lone Gunman Kill Lincoln? Author Brings Her Theory to the Southland

Author Nora Titone is coming to the Frankfort Public Library to talk about her new book on the Lincoln assassination.

We all know what happened the night of April 14, 1865, at Ford's Theatre, right? One author isn't so sure.

And she's bringing her theories to the Southland.

The full story behind President Abraham Lincoln's assassination has never been told, according to author Nora Titone.

Titone is set to talk at the Frankfort Public Library about her investigation into Booth family letters and diaries and her new evidence in this mystery.

My Thoughts Be Bloody, brings to light another character in addition to Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth.

To read who else Titone suspects, plus part two of our interview with The Byrds' Roger McGuinn and to find out which Starship is landing in the Southland, read this week's SouthScene arts and culture column.

There has always been lots of speculation as to whether John Wilkes Booth acted alone or if he was a hired assassin. Many people have speculated that Booth was hired by powerful bankers to kill Lincoln. Because Lincoln had the U.S. government print large quantities of the "Lincoln greenback" dollars. Other people believe that John F. Kennedy was also killed by powerful bankers. Because Kennedy had the U.S. government print "US Notes". Instead of using "Federal Reserve Notes". Many people don't know that "The Federal Reserve" is a privately owned banking system, it's not owned by U.S. government as the name may imply.
