    in a square wooden box or coffin in the clothes in which she died and was interred in the prison yard W J Ferguson I Saw Booth Shoot Lincoln Boston Houghton Mifflin Co 1930 Published sixty five years after Lincoln s assassination Houghton Mifflin produced only one thousand copies of this slim volume Dedicated to the school children of the United States to acquaint them with the true story told by an eye witness of the assassination of President Lincoln it is a dense detail laden book Although the author goes to great pains to describe the scene at Ford s Theatre his recounting is full of inaccuracies regarding the architecture of the building Additionally he claims that he was the one who escorted Laura Keene to Lincoln s box This is quite interesting as many scholars believe the story of Keene cradling the Presidents head in her lap to be a complete hoax A discussion of Ferguson s inaccuracies can be found at The Civil War Blog http civilwar gratzpa org 2012 04 w j ferguson i saw booth shoot lincoln In my opinion the most fascinating aspect of this book is that Ferguson perpetuates the story that Booth had in fact committed suicide Recalling a conversation he had with a cavalry sergeant who was part of the group that captured Booth Ferguson states He gave me the impression that Booth shot himself with the carbine he held in his hand and was not shot by Boston Corbett from outside the barn where Booth was brought to bay 61 So why did Ferguson wait an astounding 65 years to tell this story Why not come forward and report what he saw immediately especially if he and Laura Keene were the only ones to actually witness the assassination His answer I was not questioned I was not counted of enough importance to be questioned I was a boy only the call boy 62 David

executed in the United States It was at Mary Surratt s boardinghouse that the conspirators plotted to kidnap Lincoln and although her role in the conspiracy appears today to be quite limited all eight conspirators the ninth her son John fled the country soon after the assassination were tried simultaneously before a military commission Since 1865 much has been written on her innocence with many authors arguing that her guilt was limited to simply owning the boarding house where the conspirators plotted the assassination The story of Mary Surratt was recently told in the 2011 movie The Conspirator which can be found in Law Library s DVD collection return to top Trial of John H Surratt in the Criminal Court for the District of Columbia Washington French Richardson 1867 Read it online http archive org details trialjohnhsurra00surrgoog Reprint available in the Law Library s main collection KF223 S896 S87 2008 This two volume set contains the verbatim transcript of witness testimony in the criminal trial of the man who plotted with John Wilkes Booth to kidnap President Lincoln and hold him in exchange for Confederate prisoners The fascinating part of this story begins soon after Booth assassinated Lincoln Surratt fled the country and by time he was extradited the statute of limitations on most of the relevant charges had expired Also of interest is that unlike his mother who was tried before a military court found guilty and subsequently hanged John Surratt was tried before a civilian court This was due to the recent U S Supreme Court decision Ex parte Milligan decided after Mary Surratt and other conspirators were hanged which found military trials of civilians to be unconstitutional The Assassination of President Lincoln and the Trial of the Conspirators David E
