           Mrs. Mary Surratt and Dr. Samuel Mudd: Innocent Victims or Guilty Conspirators
           Forest J. Bowman, Jackson Kelly Professor of Law Emeritus

           Forest Jackson “Jack” Bowman is the Jackson Kelly Professor of Law Emeritus at West Virginia
           University and an avid student of history. A former Captain in the United States Army, he is
           especially interested in the American Civil War, having ancestors who served on both sides of that
           struggle. His particular area of interest is in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, a subject
           he has studied intensely for over fifty years.

           His research has taken him from the back door of Washington’s Ford’s theater, to the want ad
           pages of the New York Daily Intelligencer, to the Library of Congress, to the private writings of a
           former president of VPI (who was a secret agent for Jefferson Davis), to an obscure threat made by
           Confederate Col. John Singleton Mosby to a Confederate soldier from Bowman’s hometown of
           Petersburg, West Virginia. Along the way he has discovered that much of what has been written about
           President Lincoln’s assassination is not simply misleading and confusing, it is downright wrong. He
           will concentrate in particular on the cases of Mrs. Mary Surratt and Dr. Samuel Mudd, conspirators
           widely believed to be innocent victims of the Federal government’s thirst for vengeance. In his
           presentation he will tell us the real story of what happened on that tragic night at Ford’s Theater and,
           in particular, whether Mrs. Surratt and Dr. Mudd were innocent victims or guilty conspirators.
