Avenging Lincoln's Death...
A new book on the 1865 Conspiracy Trial is now available. Avenging Lincoln's Death: The Trial of John Wilkes Booth's Accomplices by Thomas J. Reed has been published by Rowman & Littlefield and Fairleigh Dickinson University Press and is selling for $75. Because of the steep price, the Surratt Society (of which Dr. Reed is a member) will publicize the book in the February newsletter, but not sell it in the gift shop at Surratt House.

Skimming the contents (book just arrived on my desk today), it is well-organized under a variety of topics familiar to assassination students who have studied the various aspects of the military commission. The author assisted lawyer Candida Ewing Steel in 1997 with the Mudd efforts to "Free Dr. Mudd" and went on to teach classes on the Lincoln assassination. It was from his students, that Dr. Reed got the encouragement to write this book.
