Hello All,   I'm Dave Jones from Minneapolis.  I was at the Surratt Conference recently and had a great time.  My interest in the Lincoln Assassination really started with an interest in the JFK assassination but that led to reading about and learning about other assassinations.  I enjoy reading the comments on this board and learning from all of you.  Thanks so much!

Hi--

Just found this site a couple of days ago and it makes for fascinating reading! I've been interested in the Lincoln assassination for a long-time and reading the many posts here has been most enjoyable.

The scholarship and historical savvy of the board members is so impressive!

I need to visit the Surratt Tavern Museum soon; I've driven past it many times, but always have had somewhere to be that precluded stopping. Now that I'm semi-retired I can make time for a quality visit!

Thanks, Randal! As I read through all the prior forum posts, I've developed an appreciation for the job you've done as moderator.

A good moderator is key to the success of a Web forum.

Hi, Laurie--

I'll be sure to stop and say, "Hi!" I've greatly enjoyed reading your posts on this forum.

I've been trying to read through all the posts on the forum so far, and they are so interesting. I believe I've gotten through 8-1/2 pages of 52, and it's a real education! There are several books referenced that I wasn't aware of, and I look forward to reading those, too.

New to the board?  Introduce yourself!
I'm a life-long student of American history, especially Civil War history and Lincoln's role in that epic drama. I was drawn to a posting on this site discussing General Martin D. Hardin escorting Fanny Seward and others to the monitor to identify her father's attacker, Lewis Paine (Powell), based on an April 11, 1915 article in the Washington Post. I've been researching General Hardin's life for five years and am eager to follow-up on this lastest clue. Incidentally, Hardin believed that Paine was among a raiding party of Mosby's Rangers, wearing Union uniforms, that ambushed his command at Catlett Station in December 1863. Hardin was seriously wounded in the affair and lost his left arm as a result. General Hardin was also a friend of the Lincoln family and helped lead the hunt for that assassin on that terrible Good Friday.

Hi Jim, welcome to the forum!

I've been looking for information that Hardin may have given about escorting Fanny Seward to the Saugus to identify Lewis Powell but I haven't found anything yet.

  I'm MaddieM on the Lincoln Discussion Symposium Forum and I run the forum dedicated to Lewis Powell.   

Could you clarify that just a little?  "run the forum dedicated to Lewis Powell"?
