Lindsey,

Great job on you article in the Courier! It was very informative. I go back and forth with Mary's complicity in the assasination plot. The kidnapping plot, I'd say she was aware of. When it turned to murder  Huh   

Best,

Lindsey,
a very informative & interesting article. 

Mary Surratt, a Victorian Age Woman, got a really bad deal ultimately with the death penalty. But another Victorian Woman, Lizzie Borden, got a great deal.  She was never convicted of the crime of murdering her father & stepmother even though may experts believe she did it.  Different case, different time, different situation but I believe I read or heard somewhere that a woman in the Victorian Age could never commit such a grisly crime.

I wrote in my latest issue of Occasional Papers that Lindsey is writing a book on David Herold. I suspect Dave Taylor will write a book as well.
