Tomorrow, the Joe Cocker tour rolls on with the death of Lincoln:
On April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth, a famous actor and Confederate sympathizer, fatally shot President Abraham Lincoln at a play at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. The attack came only five days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, effectively ending the American Civil War.
Abraham Lincoln’s killer, John Wilkes Booth, was a Maryland native born in 1838 who remained in the North during the Civil War despite his Confederate sympathies. As the conflict entered its final stages, he and several associates hatched a plot to kidnap the president and take him to Richmond, the Confederate capital. However, on March 20, 1865, the day of the planned kidnapping, Lincoln failed to appear at the spot where Booth and his six fellow conspirators lay in wait. Two weeks later, Richmond fell to Union forces. In April, with Confederate armies near collapse across the South, Booth came up with a desperate plan to save the Confederacy.
Chong Li will act out the balance of the drama as Mr. Booth. We’ll conclude the tutorial by drag him out of the burning barn listening to him reference his “useless” hands.
If that doesn’t peak your interest, let’s see what’s planned for the work-out:
Partner-up (Obviously) – No warm-up. Do that at home.
Four loops – Loop starts at the upper parking lot, run down to the lower parking lot, over to the pond, around the pond, up to the amphitheater, and finishes at the upper parking lot.
Four stops: 1.) Upper parking lot, 2.) Lower parking lot near picnic tables, 3) side of the pond closest to the amphitheater and 4.) the amphitheater.
Exercises: 22 per partner at each stop – 44 total (see what I did there). 1.)Starjumps, 2.)Spiderman merkins, 3.)Jumping Lunge and 4.) Carolina Dry Docks.
First team back gets to play Lincoln #boobieprize
Get your head and body right for tomorrow.
