I do look forward to seeing this film.But I beg to differ with the
AP that many Americans DO know about the "conspirators" put on trial after the
assassination. I remember Mr. Harrold, Aserolt (sp?), Mrs Surrat, her boarding
house and the others.Heck, they even imprisoned Dr. Mudd just
because he set Booths broken leg and he didn't even know him or what he had
done. To this day people will say, "Your name is Mudd."
I think that this will be an interesting film and it will interesting to compare
it with what I learned at Ford's Theatre in Washington D.C. a few years ago.
There is a whole museum in the basement of the theatre that has displays and
stories about the aftermath of the Lincoln assasination.
