Mother Of All Conspiracy Theories
And It’s Got Nothing To Do With Kennedy
I had a friend a long time ago in college, who became convinced that she and all her friends were the reincarnation of the conspirators involved with the Lincoln assassination in 1865. Made for some interesting late-night discussions (and laughs) of a kind for which college students are known. I forget which of the conspirators I was supposed to have been.
This came to mind just last week when I happened across a show on The History Channel; The Hunt for John Wilkes Booth, an episode that both I and the AstroWife found particularly entertaining and informative.
Dismissed for 175 years as a fake, a letter threatening the assassination of President Andrew Jackson has been found to be authentic. And, says the director of the Andrew Jackson Papers Project at the University of Tennessee, the writer was none other than Junius Brutus Booth, father of Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth.
Now that’s history!
