The attached article concerning the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln was penned a few years after the event took place, and appeared in an 1867 history on the American Civil War. The author referred to a popular allegation that was a common among Northerners at the time:

"It was alleged, and with some reason, that the plot was known to, and approved by, the Rebel government in Richmond, and that [Jefferson] Davis and some of his cabinet, and their agents in Canada, were accomplices in the crime. Whether this be so or not, certain it is that propositions to assassinate President Lincoln and other prominent members of the government were received and entertained by Davis and his associates, and were not rejected at once, and with the scorn which became civilized and Christian men."
