12.25" x 15.25" framed display with a strand of the actual hair of Mary Surratt with a colorized copy photograph of her, as well as a copy of a photograph of her hanging. Single matted with gray stock and a Florentine gold trim frame around the strand.

Mary Surratt was tried and convicted as a conspirator in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the attempt on Secretary of State William H. Seward’s life. In spite of attempts to save her life she was hanged with three other conspirators on July 7, 1865.

This strand of hair originated from a small lock that came from Samuel Curtis, a guard at the prison, and found in his 1865 diary in a small envelope written in his hand. The provenance is attested to by a lifetime member of The Manuscript Society.

Reverse has wire for hanging but eyelet needs reattached to frame.   [ad]
