The Notes' section alone is worth the cost of the book!

A True account of Mudd's involvement. Though he cried foul, "The guilty dog barks the loudest".

For those of us who were raised on the Dr. Mudd as victim myth, this book is a real eye opener. The historical record as set forth in the book contains enough hard evidence to conclude that Mudd and Booth were well known to each other; that Mudd conspired with Booth and others to kidnap the president; that the conspiracy morphed into a conspiracy to kill the president; Whether Mudd was involved at that point is a matter of conjecture, however, conspiracies being what they are, he is accountable for all of it. Surely he knowingly harbored a fugitive and helped him escape after he knew what he had done. In my opinion, Booth must have bragged about what he did while in Dr. Mudd's care. As pointed out in the book, if Booth were caught he most certainly would have rolled over on Mudd. Therefore Mudd had to help him escape. Mudd's family fought the conviction for over a hundred years. One wonders, why?

This was a gift from a girl who probably suspected that I intended to bread up with her. Fitting, in a warped sort of way. Still, I should thank her sometime. I really enjoyed the book and learned bits of history that most history books simply ignore. For example, how many people knew that Mudd was friends with John Wilkes Booth BEFORE Lincoln's assassination, and probably approved of Booth's actions? I found the information here as eye opening as Howard Zinn's wonderful People's History of the United States. Which I also strongly recommend.

This book proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the "good doctor" was completely guilty of conspiring with John Wilkes Booth. Despite the way the Mudd family has manipulated the story and the media for decades, the truth is finally coming out!!!

I thought the book was interesting & convincing, but a bit redundant at times. Interesting that the mention of Mudds name by Sam Arnold at his arrest was not mentioned.

Excellent look with plenty of detail and reasoned discussion of what Mudd knew and did, or did not know. I've read Mr Steers' other books and they are all carefully done. About the only thing Mudd didn't do was physically participate in the assassination, otherwise he was up to eyeballs in it. Guilty!

Wonderful book. Easy to follow, but very detailed. Great pictures. I have also read Blood On The Moon by Mr. Steers, and this work is first class also. Dr. Mudd was lucky Andrew Johnson released him. If he had not helped fellow prisoners and guards recover from Yellow fever, he would have deserved to remain in prison for life, and Dr. Mudd should get credit for that. The Mudd family should be glad he didn't get what he deserved - the gallows next to Mary Surratt!
