I just finished this this morning. Great job, Randal. I had heard very little about Smoot in this story and never really paid him much attention. A great job with the research and tying this all together. It's a first hand account I'm sorry I've ignored for so long. Ford's statement about Booth's escape route married up with Smoot's points us in a direction other than Dr. Mudd's home. Lots of great points were made, including Mrs. Surratt's conduct from someone who experienced her leanings first hand. Congratulations!
I couldn't put a review up on Amazon, because I didn't purchase the book from them.
Either your book or Ms. Larson's is next, Betty!
