I do look forward to seeing this film.

But I beg to differ with the AP that many Americans DO know about the "conspirators" put on trial after the assassination. I remember Mr. Harrold, Aserolt (sp?), Mrs Surrat, her boarding house and the others.

Heck, they even imprisoned Dr. Mudd just because he set Booths broken leg and he didn't even know him or what he had done. To this day people will say, "Your name is Mudd."

I think that this will be an interesting film and it will interesting to compare it with what I learned at Ford's Theatre in Washington D.C. a few years ago. There is a whole museum in the basement of the theatre that has displays and stories about the aftermath of the Lincoln assasination.
