Display measures 11" X 14" with burgundy suede matting with gold Florentine trim. Highlights 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. The remnant of cloth bandage was included with a period note attesting that the wood came from the gallows and the cloth originated from the bindings that held her arms during the execution. These bindings had been made from material from a shelter tent at the same time the executioner, Christian Rath, made hoods from the same material. The latter is an incredibly rare relic of that faithful day. Provenance papers on all artifacts are included with the display.  [ld]
