Michael Schein will discuss his book, John Surratt: The Lincoln Assassin Who Got Away in which he examines the evidence of whether John Surratt- a fierce secessionist and Booth’s closest associate in the four months leading up to the assassination- had an airtight alibi, or whether he cheated fate and the gallows through a combination of cunning and luck (thereby avoiding the fate of his mother Mary Surratt, who was hanged for her role in the plot).
