The night of April 14th, 1865 is engrained in historic memory. From the coordinated attack that led to President Lincoln being shot and John Wilkes Booth making his way across the stage of Ford’s Theatre as he escaped DC, the vicious knife attack on Secretary of State William H. Seward, leaving him wounded along with four other victims, to the debated involvement of figures such as Mary Surratt and Dr. Samuel Mudd, the conspiracy targeting important officials of the United States Federal Government remains a point of intrigue for historical researchers and museum visitors alike. But what of the aftermath? 

Join representatives from  Ford’s Theatre, Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site, the Dr. Mudd Museum, the Seward House Museum and the Surratt House Museum for a virtual panel as they discuss the subsequent capture, trial by war tribunal, and execution of four of the accused. The discussion will take place across multiple streaming platforms, including each of the representatives’ Facebook Pages.
