Synopsis: Originally published: Washington: Government Printing Office, 1867. 2 Vols. Paged continuously. Reprint of the Trial in the Criminal Court of the District of Columbia, sitting for the trial of crimes and misdemeanors, June-August-1867. This group's original plan was to kidnap Lincoln and trade him for a large number of Confederate prisoners. Surratt fled to Italy after the assassination, but he was identified in 1866 and extradited. Surratt was tried in a civilian court of the District of Columbia, instead of a military one as his mother had been. (She was convicted as a co-conspirator and was the first woman executed by the Federal government.) Surratt's attorney admitted Surratt's part in plotting to kidnap, but not murder, the president. Surratt was ultimately released after a mistrial. The government attempted to retry him, but the statute of limitations thwarted this plan.
About the Author: John H. Surratt [1844-1916] was one of John Wilkes Booth's co-conspirators, along with five others.
