This is the story of how John Wilkes Booth, President Abraham Lincoln’s assassin, eluded Federal authorities, escaped from Washington DC, hid in southern Maryland and fled to Virginia across the Potomac River via covert Confederate river-crossing operations, as published in CENTURY magazine’s April 1884 edition. The book also describes the Confederate smuggling system to exchange mail with Confederate operatives and gather intelligence information from the Union states and deliver it to Richmond to assess the impacts of Confederate operations and policies.
