On Sunday, November 29, 2009, Andrew Jampoler, author of The Last Lincoln Conspirator: John Surratt's Flight from the Gallows, gave a very interesting talk about his book at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Bel Air. The Last Lincoln Conspirator tells the story of John Surratt who was one of the men who conspired with John Wilkes Booth to kidnap/assassinate President Abraham Lincoln. Surratt escaped and traveled to Europe where he joined the Papal Zouaves. He was eventually captured and brought back to the United States for trial. Surratt's mother, Mary, was hanged for her supposed participation in the assassination of President Lincoln.
