11" X 14" burgundy suede matting with gold Florentine trim. A display highlighting Mary Surratt, who was one of the four conspirators executed on July 7th, 1865. The strand of Lincoln's hair originated from a well-documented lock given to Mrs. Caroline Wright, the wife of the Governor of Indiana by Mary Lincoln. The documented wood fragments originated from relics obtained by a soldier stationed as a guard in the prison yard. Mary Surratt's hair was included in the effects of Samuel Curtis, another guard at the prison and found in his 1865 diary. Provenance papers on all artifacts are included with the display. All artifacts are in small magnified boxes for better viewing. The photos are copies from original images of the period.  [ld]
