By D. Troutman on July 10, 2009
Format: Paperback
I read this book after picking it up in the gift shop in the Mudd Home in Bryantown. For years, I wanted to believe Mudd was an innocent dupe just living up to his hypocratic oath. But the more I've read over the years, the less plausible it is to believe that Mudd did not know the man he was helping and housing. I DO believe Mudd's wife had no idea, but Mudd had to know based on previous meetings and conversations that night, not to mention Booth's initials were in the boot Mudd cut off that night.

For a biography about the man, this is a fine retelling, and helps satisfy any curiosity one might have about what happened to Mudd after he returned from prison. I disagree that the book is all lies, but find it is more a narrative about the information the decendants of this man have passed down for 6 or 7 generations, hoping to protect the legacy of a man who's beliefs mirrored those of half the country at the time.

I like this book very much. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted further information on the guilt or innocence of Dr. Mudd.

Format: Paperback
This is pure propaganda written by the husband of S. A. Mud's grandaughter. Mudd, a slave owning, beating,and shooting Confederate mail agent is portrayed as an honost Union man. A man who had met J. W. Booth 3 times before and plotted with him is said to be an innocent bystander. This is pure lies.

Yes, Mudd may have been a slave owner, but that night of the assassination, he was purley doing his job! I am a Mudd...I believe he was completely innocent. Maybe not of slave owning, but of the helping of teh assassination.
