I do not know if Mr. Huntt's home is in the picture (perhaps Laurie can clarify that) but this is indeed T.B.  The picture is from Osborn Oldroyd's book (copyright 1901).  Booth and Herold passed through T.B. after leaving Surrattsville, and David Herold had stayed there the night of April 13, 1865.

Laurie, I considered using the word NIGHTSHIRT as a hint, but I thought that would have made it too easy for you.  Don't worry, you're not the only one with aging eyes...pass the Restasis please.

Just wait until my Smoot booklet comes out, it explains my "theory" on it . I answer all possible combinations why Booth wouldn't have gone to Mudd's, excepting his medical condition. And, I dispell all reasons why authors think why Booth went to Mudd's, broken leg or not. It's really very simple, and has been there all along. As much as I hate to admit it, it's Rick Stelnick's theory of  "hiding in plain sight", under our nose, so to speak.  Hang on, it won't be long. (or as the doctor say's, this will only hurt a little bit).

What do the steamer "State of Maine," and the sidewheeler USS Florida have to do with the conspiracy?

I forget his name (Fernando?), but wasn't he the portugese sea captain that was taken into custody as a (possible) accomplice in the assassinaton?

Yes, Mr. Hess.  His name is Joao M. Celestino and there's a nice article relating his story here: http://www.americanheritage.com/articles/magazine/ah/1957/2/1957_2_54.shtml

Can anyone name a current Hollywood movie star that attended the same school as David Herold ?  (Charlotte Hall Military Academy)

Ay, yo, nice call Roger!  Sylvester Stallone attended the school for only a year.  This picture shows him at age 15, as a member of the freshman
class of 1961.  J. Roy Guyther, M.D.,who was attending physician for the school for many years, recalls that it was obvious that Sylvester did not
enjoy his time at Charlotte Hall as he was frequently on sick call.

Well that person did'nt do a very good job of correcting the statement as it is included in nearly every website that gives biographical infomation
on Herold.  Thanks for the correction Laurie.  Is there simply no record of him ever attending the school ?

ya know, as an aside of Stallone, I saw him in Piccadilly Circus in 1996, and I was about 5 ft. away, and I was surprised how SHORT Stallone was! He was my height !(5'9")  He looks bigger on the screen.There was a crowd of about 30 people or so gathering around him, my wife and I were sitting at an outdoor cafe about 50 yds away, and was wondering what all the commotion was about, so we wandered over. He signed a few autographs and left with some chick. No, we didn't get an autograph, nor did we want one. However, I was surprised at his height.
