“Historic home with connections to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln”

Dr. Mudd was the southern Maryland doctor who set the leg of John Wilkes Booth the morning after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Although Mudd’s role in the conspiracy to assassinate Lincoln has been debated, the doctor received a life sentence for harboring Booth and his accomplice, and was sent to Fort Jefferson, now part of Dry Tortugas National Park. After serving a little more than three years of his sentence, Mudd received a pardon from President Andrew Johnson. Today, the doctor’s original home has been preserved as the Dr. Samuel A. Mudd House Museum, located just outside Waldorf.
