This is a very good video about the first execution of a woman by our government. My research into the Lincoln Conspiracy has proven that Mary Surratt was completely innocent of the charge against her. The original plot against Abraham Lincoln was the creation of the secret pro-Southern organization, the Knights of the Golden Circle, and it called for the kidnapping of Lincoln, not the murder of him. The plot was hatched even before Lincoln's first inauguration in 1861. Both Booth and John Harrison Surratt (Mary's son) were members of the KGC Castle in Baltimore. The KGC did not allow women to be members of their organization so there's no way that Mary Surratt would have been told about the conspiracy, much less been allowed to take part in it. This film had one major error in it, an error that we were all taught in school, which is that Booth was killed on Garrett's Farm. In fact, Booth escaped and lived under assumed names until his death in Enid, Oklahoma in 1903.
