Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Someone please revert this edit , which changed the picture at the top of the page from the first of the pictures below (which is a feature picture here on Wikipedia) to the second (which looks to be a rather unfortunate, poorly mangled Photoshop job).
This file is likely to be the first item seen by any vistors to the page, and we ought to hold ourselves to a higher standard here. I'd revert it myself if the article weren't protected. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:304:ab23:5789:9deb:4598:388f:6632 (talk • contribs) 21:55 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Hello public, I came across this article and was struck by its style, as I thought it seemed unfit for Wikipedia's Manual of Style (WP:MOS). For example, in the article, a section begins with: "On April 14, 1865, Booth's morning started at the stroke of midnight. Lying wide awake in his bed at the National Hotel, he wrote his mother that all was well, but that he was "in haste". In his diary, he wrote that 'Our cause being almost lost, something decisive and great must be done'." The wording of that section sounds too close to narrative rather than factual description--is this a failure to adhere to reliability or something similar to that? There is no doubt that this article stands out in style compared to any other I have seen, and for the sake of Wikipedia, I want this to at least be addressed, even if it is fine how it is or if I'm overreacting.Mechanic1c (talk) 21:47, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

In the image caption, please add "only." "Booth's approach and reacted only after the shot was fired." 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:26, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
Not done: The addition of the word only doesnt seem to change the meaning of the sentance so seems unnessecary. Amortias (T)(C) 20:31, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
