Best Answer

Abraham Lincoln was the first president to die of assassination. He was shot in the back of his head by John Wilkes Booth, a well-known actor and Confederate spy from Maryland. Lincoln was assassinated at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. where he and his wife were attending the play Our American Cousin on April 14, 1865, which was Good Friday. Lincoln was shot once, at point blank range, at approximately 10:15 PM.

Once he was shot, he was carried from the theatre to a boarding house across the street from the theatre. He remained in a comatose state for more than 8 hours. Many doctors offered to help, and some examined the President, but there was ultimately nothing to be done, as the bullet was lodged deep in the President's brain. He died at approximately 7:22 AM the following morning, April 15, 1865.

Used semi trucks are far less expensive than brand new semi trucks. Someone who is just starting out in the trucking industry may have better luck finding a used semi truck that he or she can afford. There are a few places to begin your search if you need a used semi truck.

Truck Auctions

Watch your local newspaper or trucking website to learn when the next truck auctions will be held. Truck auctions are an excellent place to find good used semi trucks for a great price. You may need to travel out of your immediate area to find a good auction, but the savings will be worth it. Auctions are also good places to meet other truckers and learn more about the business. Not every truck that is sold at auction is ready to hit the road, though, so be careful when you bid.

Fleet Vehicles

There are several companies that provide trucks and drivers to commercial interests throughout the United States. Every now and then these companies are willing to sell old trucks so that they can acquire new trucks. If you are looking for a well maintained used semi truck, this is probably the best place to find one. The fleet trucks have been regularly serviced and maintained throughout their service with the company, which means that they will be in the best possible condition when you buy a used one. Old fleet trucks are sometimes sold at a substantial discount because of the number of miles they have logged.

Word of Mouth

One of the best ways to find out about good quality used semi trucks is through word of mouth. Trucking is a large industry, but the drivers are a tight-knit group. If someone is trying to sell his or her truck, there will be a line of communication about it throughout the trucking community. Make sure you let as many truckers as possible know that you are in the market for a used semi truck. The chances are good that you will be handed several different leads on trucks that area for sale by owner in your state. These tips are trustworthy because they are usually from friends of the drivers in question.
