The interesting thing about the Lincoln assassination is that, unlike other presidential assassinations particularly JFK, the Lincoln plot was a real conspiracy. Not necessary to speculate any further than what we historically already know about Booth and his co-conspirators.

Here a note:

The Day of Atonement
The one fact that may be most significant is one that all theorists including Chiniquy seem to have ignored completely: April 14, 1865 was not just any Friday, but Good Friday. Perhaps this oversight was because the president’s life lingered until Saturday. To most historians, who see the assassination largely as a crime of opportunity triggered by the fall of the Confederacy, this means nothing; but even if it was, would Booth and his fellow plotters have seen it that way? Would it not be seen as entirely providential and foreordained that the “bloodthirsty tyrant” be slain the very day Christ was crucified? Would it not have given a fanatic even further impetus?
And how, for that matter, did the fact that Lincoln was shot on Good Friday contribute to his later being deified as the “savior” of the country?
As with that other assassination nearly a century later of a “martyred” Catholic president by a “lone gunman”, the truth will never be known. But considering the equally dubious conspiracy theories in regard to Kennedy that seem less implausible as time goes on, it may not be quite so easy to dismiss the Catholic connection to Lincoln’s murder as it once was.

Gi have read a bit to and see not a conspiracy but an effort to cloud things maybe. I can't say it's the Catholics or any particular group. Inclined to believe many hands were work. Speaking of the Catholic thing...
Meade very Catholic, born in Spain, was visited supposedly by a very high Catholic envoy. Just prior to Gettysburg. Asked to throw the upcoming battle...

Let your inter conspirator be free, embrace the conspiracy...
Thanks for your response.
What makes the suggestion that a conspiracy attempted to get Meade to "throw" the Battle of Gettysburg even more ludicrous is that not so long ago a member insisted that Lee himself was part of a successful conspiracy to "throw" the Battle of Gettysburg and the entire rebel effort!
