 John Wilkes Booth FBI Files - Lincoln Assassination Historical Material

JOHN WILKES BOOTH FBI FILES & LINCOLN ASSASSINATION HISTORICAL MATERIAL

90 pages of files copied from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and archived on CD-ROM covering John Wilkes Booth. Despite the fact the FBI was not formed until many years after the death of John Wilkes Booth, the bureau responded to inquiries concerning Booth. These records contain correspondence dated 1922-23 of William J. Burns, former Director of the Bureau of Investigation, concerning a theory that Booth lived many years after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Also included are the results of a 1948 examination by the FBI Laboratory of a boot said to be worn by Booth on the night of the assassination and a 1977 examination of a diary belonging to Booth.

In addition to the FBI files, included on the CD are 2 photos of John Wilkes Booth, 4 photos of Captain Edward P. Doherty, the pursuer of Booth, 25 assassination related photos including photos of the conspirators, their executions, and Lincoln's funeral. A copy of Mary Todd Lincoln's petition for a pension because of her husbands's death. The Washington police blotter from day of the assassination. An additional 40 pieces of digitized ephemeral from the time of the assassination dealing with the murder, including wanted posters, illustrations of Lincoln's funeral, and the execution of the conspirators.
