Abraham Lincoln had been living in the shadow of such threats for more than four years, ever since the final leg of his train journey from Illinois to Washington in February was scheduled for the dead of night so as to avoid assassins thought to be lying in wait in Baltimore.
The Confederate Secret Service and the Assassination of Lincoln —32 recounting threats to Lincoln during his travel to Washington in Cleveland compiler,and less than one percent of the vote in present-day Virginia, see id. Finally, thankfully, the elusive peace was at hand.
This lesson, learned from the war, he meant to apply to the equally intractable problems of the peace. Close Lincoln thereby began to mark the path to repair and reconciliation in the wake of the acute enmity that had torn the nation apart. And so it was that on Thursday evening, April 13, just before the start of the Easter weekend, the District of Columbia was in a state of almost mystical reverie and wonder: The very heavens seemed to have come down, and the stars twinkled in a sort of faded way, as if the solar system was out of order, and earth had become the great luminary.
Every flag was flung out, windows were gay with many devices, and gorgeous lanterns danced on their ropes along the walls in a fantastic way, as if the fairies were holding holiday inside.
At the War Department, an elaborate fixture of gas jets contributed to the otherworldly nature of the evening: The Autocrat of Rebellion, Emancipation, and Reconstruction Close How incongruous it was, then, that the devastating blow should be drawn the next day, at that very moment of collective relief following years of dread and unimaginable bloodshed—just as it appeared that the nation was emerging from the abyss.
Close What made the murder even more shocking was that the blow arrived not from what remained of the Confederate Army, in a theater of war, but instead under the most banal of circumstances, in a theater of a much more ordinary kind, and at the hand of a common actor, not yet twenty-seven years of age.
Considering how the war had weighed on him, at least his last conscious moment was a hoot. In a letter to his mother a week after the autopsy, Edward Curtis described the scene: Seated around the room were several general officers and some civilians, silent or conversing in whispers, and to one side, stretched upon a rough framework of boards and covered only with sheets and towels, lay, cold and immovable, what but a few hours before was the soul of a great nation.
The Surgeon General was walking up and down the room when I arrived, and detailed to me the history of the case. He said that the President showed most wonderful tenacity of life, and, had not his wound been necessarily mortal, might have survived an injury to which most men would succumb.
Woodward and I proceeded to open the head and remove the brain down to the track of the ball. The latter had entered a little to the left of the median line at the back of the head, had passed almost directly forward through the center of the brain and lodged.
Not finding it readily, we proceeded to remove the entire brain: Our examination over, I proposed to the Surgeon General to weigh the brain, since the comparative weight of the brains of men distinguished for intellect is a matter of great scientific interest. As I looked at the mass of soft gray and white substance that I was carefully washing, it was impossible to realize that it was that mere clay upon whose workings but the day before rested the hopes of the nation.
But the figures, such as they were, seemed to show that the brain weight was not above the ordinary for a man of Mr. Curtis, supra note 1. Close As dramatic and consequential as the assassination may have been, however, it was also—both in form and as a matter of law—a standard-issue homicide, of the sort the criminal justice system routinely handled.
Such a federal criminal trial for an attack on a President would not have been unprecedented. Thirty years earlier, Old City Hall had been the site of the trial of Richard Lawrence, who had attempted to assassinate President Andrew Jackson as he emerged from the Capitol Rotunda.
Supreme Court whom President Lincoln himself had handpicked when that court was established to replace the old Circuit Court of the District of Columbia. Circuit Court and the local criminal court with the Supreme Court for the District of Columbia, to which Lincoln immediately appointed four pro-Union judges.
At the tip of that peninsula, Greenleaf Point, lay the old, underutilized United States Arsenal, which had once been a federal penitentiary. Arsenal Penitentiary, Part 1: InLincoln had ordered that the Arsenal be transferred to the War Department for the warehousing of military supplies; virtually all of its prisoners were sent elsewhere.
Close The Administration chose that imposing, nondescript building as the site of a most extraordinary, unorthodox adjudicatory proceeding, one that raised fundamental constitutional questions concerning the proper balance between civil and military authorities.
Close where it would remain until transferred to the Booth family plot in Baltimore four years later. Surratt was later apprehended in Egypt and returned to the United States, where he was tried before a federal civilian jury in the D.
Supreme Court in See infra section III. Close Within two weeks of the crime, however, eight other suspected confederates of Booth and Surratt were arrested and placed in military custody—some in the Old Capitol Prison in the District of Columbia at First and A Streets NEothers on two ironclad ships, the U.
Montauk and the U. Saugus, anchored in the Washington Navy Yard in the District. Close On April 30, the Army transferred the alleged accomplices to an area of the Arsenal penitentiary that had been closed for years, where they were detained in squalid conditions, most of them forced to wear stifling canvas hoods.
