For two months in 1865, Dr. Samuel A. Mudd and seven others sat through a military trial over their involvement in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. What was it like to sit in that court room day after day? How did the press report on the trial of the century? In his talk, Dave will discuss the trial of the conspirators with special attention on the doctor who set the assassin’s leg.
Join historian Dave Taylor as he delves into the intricate details of Dr. Mudd in the trial of the conspirators!
The presentation will be September 21, 2019. All of our talks are free to the public and begin at 1 pm in the Exhibit Building. Seating is limited, so please come early!
