About This Item

2008. ISBN-13: 9781584779049; ISBN-10: 1584779047. Tried for the Attempted Kidnapping of President Lincoln Surratt, John [1844-1916], Defendant. Trial of John H. Surratt in the Criminal Court for the District of Columbia, Hon. George P. Fisher presiding. Washington: Government Printing Office, 1867. 2 Vols. Paged continuously. 728; iii; 729-1383 pp. Reprinted 2008 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584779049; ISBN-10: 1584779047. Hardcover. New. $350. * Reprint of the Trial in the Criminal Court of the District of Columbia, sitting for the trial of crimes and misdemeanors, June-August-1867. Surratt [1844-1916] was one of John Wilkes Booth's co-conspirators, along with five others. This group's original plan was to kidnap Lincoln and trade him for a large number of Confederate prisoners. Surratt fled to Italy after the assassination, but he was identified in 1866 and extradited. Surratt was tried in a civilian court of the District of Columbia, instead of a military one as his mother had been. (She was convicted as a co-conspirator and was the first woman executed by the Federal government.) Surratt's attorney admitted Surratt's part in plotting to kidnap, but not murder, the president. Surratt was ultimately released after a mistrial. The government attempted to retry him, but the statute of limitations thwarted this plan.


Originally published: Washington : Government Printing Office, 1867. Includes index.
