Benjamin Gates (Nicolas Cage) must follow a clue left in John Wilkes Booth's diary to prove his ancestor's innocence in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
The saying made by John Wilkes Booth after his assassination of Lincoln, and leap from the balcony, "sic semper tyrannis" is a shortened version of the Latin phrase "sic semper evello mortem tyrannis", meaning "thus always bring death to tyrants".
He's in the other room.
Ben presses the service button after he and Abigail get into the lift, then shuts the doors. In real-life, the lift can only move if the doors are closed when the buttons are pressed.
The Jerry Bruckheimer logo becomes a real life version of itself as a road some Union soldiers walk along towards 1865 Washington DC.
