Taken 1865 by Alexander Gardner of Lewis Powell (also known as Lewis Payne), who attempted to murder Secretary State William Seward on April 14, 1865 - the same night that Lincoln was assassinated. He was a part of a conspiracy to kill the central figures of the United States government. He stabbed Seward but failed to kill him. Shown here in irons on board the U.S.S. Saugus. He was executed on July 7, 1865 with three other conspirators.

Justice is served! James Earl Ray on the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King: convicted on March 10, 1969, after entering a guilty plea to forgo a jury trial. Had he been found guilty by jury trial, he would have been eligible for the death penalty.[1] He was sentenced to 99 years in prison. He later recanted his confession and tried unsuccessfully to gain a new trial. He died in prison

  • Tami Ketteman

    The Kennedy Assasination is the most glaring example of a govermental cover-up and manipulation of facts that is known to man. My belief is that it was a co-operative effort between the mob and CIA. The Zapruder film alone shows enough fact to reveal that there was not one gunman

    Since when does correlation equal causation? Many of the protesters were also military vets.

    I have jars of ash that I scooped out of my yard. We could see layers of the ash in our flower beds for many years.

On November 18, 1978 912 followers of American cult leader Jim Jones ("Peoples Temple") died in a remote South American jungle compound called "Jonestown" in British Guyana. Some members were shot, others were forced to drink poison, but most willingly participated in what Jones said was an act of "revolutionary suicide."

    What a powerful photograph. I just got goosebumps after reading the caption

    Really, really sad. Both Ritchie Valens and Buddy Holly were just getting big. And Ritchie even had a huge fear if airplanes, but was flying for the music and his family. Very sad and ironic.
