Summary
"Boardinghouse owner Mary Surratt was one of four Southern sympathizers who was tried, convicted and executed for conspiring to assassinate President Lincoln. Believed by many to have been innocent, she was nevertheless doomed to be the first woman executed by the federal government. Was the widow Surratt truly guilty of the crime, or just a busy mother and innkeeper in the wrong place at the wrong time?"--Publisher's website.
