I've been trying to locate a copy of William Tidwell's article "Booth Crosses the Potomac: An Excercise in Historical Research".  The only copy I have been able to find on-line was through some service requiring an academic connection to register, I believe.  Does anyone have an idea where I can get my hands on a copy?

It was in Civil War History, 36 (No. 4, 1990), 325-33. Go to your nearest big academic library and get the issue off the shelf and and copy it.

Thanks, Joe, it is very interesting and lays out the reasoning behind Tidwell's conclusion that Booth's first (and unsuccessful) attempt to cross the Potomac was on the night of Friday April 21, a conclusion which later found its way into "Come Retribution".  Ed Steers, of course, instead cocludes that the first attemt was made the previous night, Thursday, April 20.  Upon different occasions I have convinced myself of the accuracy of both viewpoints, and in the end am left undecided.
