History with Mark Bielski

Nov 1, 2018

We go back to Good Friday April 1865 and President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination at Ford's Theatre in Washington. Later that night, assassin John Wilkes Booth, on the run and in desperate need of medical attention for his broken leg, stopped at the home of Dr. Samuel A. Mudd in Southern Maryland. Mark visits the home and grounds, now a museum, with Curator Dorothea Barstow to learn about the conspiracy, Booth and Dr. Mudd.
