The National Geographic Channel has launched a companion website to Killing Lincoln, its docu-drama set to air this weekend, within which people can explore content related to Lincoln's assassination and his killer, John Wlikes Booth. The film itself was co-produced by Ridley Scott and and the late Tony Scott, and is narrated by Tom Hanks.

Created by Mullen, the Killing Lincoln Conspiracy site features an HTML5 design in which readers can scroll down to view content designed to immerse them in 1865 and the world of Wilkes Booth. Mullen worked with the Library of Congress and the National Archives to source some 1000 unique elements including photos, video, audio and text. To bring the story to life, Google Street View allows viewers to see locations (such as Wilkes Booth's boarding house) as they are today; users can also see which location they are currently closest to, via geo-targeting. As well as telling the story, the site also highlights the ramifications of Booth's actions, noting how they changed history.
