Nope, not him.

Hint #5: This man used a middle initial, but no assassination book (at least that I own) says what the initial stood for (if anything).

RE: Assassination Trivia
Kudos, Betty! That is correct. The claim is on p. 6 of Weichmann's book. He says it happened at a public reception, and he shook hands with Lincoln. It says, Taking my hand in his with a firm, full grasp, his words were, "How do you do, sir? I am glad to see you."

RE: Assassination Trivia
I am posing a "stumper" that should have my Yankee antagonist growing old before his time. I almost posted on the thread that he created, but I decided to be more ladylike. If Yankee Joe gets the correct answer to this one, I will double his score!

On April 10, 1861, the New York Times reported that a package, likely destined for the White House, was received by the Washington City post office. The box had been broken open somewhat, and in the process of inspecting it, the contents fell out. What were the contents?

RE: Assassination Trivia
Is it allowed for non-Yankees and non-Southerners (but so. addicted to such games) to guess, too? I know I recently read that, also know where, but the book is at home, so - I guess it was something like a ham?

RE: Assassination Trivia
Whoa! Double my score? I'm all over this! Roger - can you switch this over to the other thread?

RE: Assassination Trivia
Sorry, Joe, after much struggling, trial and error, etc. I have figured out how to move entire threads but not individual posts.

You may be of ANY sectional persuasion to participate. Believe it or not, Yankee Joe and I are good friends. We just like to irritate each other.

Eva - Guess again; and I sure hope you don't have the book I'm using as the source for this.

RE: Assassination Trivia
In the Lincoln assassination saga many doctors are mentioned. One of them had a grandfather who participated in the Boston Tea Party. Which doctor was this?
