RE: Backstage at the Lincoln Assassination
I cannot imagine. I think he wasn't the kind of personality and character to agree and participate in crime even though he helped Spangler, the Booths' etc. afterwards. This I feel was rather from "family /friendship feeling" (the same kind of feeling as Edwin had for this brother although not agreeing with his actions). And wasn't he a Unionist (at that time)?

RE: Backstage at the Lincoln Assassination
John Ford was a very humane, pragmatic figure. He always knew which way the wind was blowing, and knew when to trim his sails. I have never found anything to indicate he was in any way involved with the conspiracy, or might have even suspected anything was in the wind (although his brother Harry may have sniffed a thing or two). Enough mixed metaphors for everyone? Wink

Thanks! The night after that, Apr. 21, I will be in Toms River NJ, speaking at the Ocean Co. Library. The book's reception has been really rewarding (and humbling).

Vicki and I had the pleasure today of attending a book talk by Tom. Tom spoke at the Sanibel Public Library on beautiful Sanibel Island. The talk was a reminder to me of just how unique, thorough, and excellent Tom's book is. Kudos on a job well done, Tom!

Roger,

Tom ALWAYS delivers an excellent talk! I have had the privilege of hearing him speak 3 or 4 times now. Better and better each time. Hope you guys were able to get together and enjoy time spent.
