The Trial of the Lincoln Assassination Conspirators

Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on the evening of April 14 and died early the next day. Although John Wilkes Booth was the lone gunman, the assassination was part of a larger conspiracy. This site, compiled by a law professor, is filled with information about the trial of the conspirators, biographies about those involved, maps, newspaper accounts, and even a Jeopardy game to see what you’ve learned.
