Little things stand out for me. Such as, why wasn't Mike and Don wearing Life preservers when rowing the boat?  Grin Shocked

It was very neat to see some of the sites. I thought Mike and Kate did very, very well. Not so much the other people. Reality T.V. is still perpetrating the same 'ol "myths" though! Overall, I thought it was horrible. Except for Mike and Kate.  Smiley

That's a great post. I, too, have seen it written or suggested in papers and books that B.C. was "trigger happy" and disobeyed orders not to fire on Booth, but I never believed it. L. Baker was the source of some of those stories, if I recall. Who knows? I'm old now!  Wink

Sam Arnold had two brothers, William and Frank. I don't know which one  though.

If you can find the student "roster" of St. Timothy's Hall school in Cantonsville, MD, in the early 1850's, you could see if another Arnold was on there besides Sam. My guess it would be his brother.

I am remembering this, off the top of my head, as my computer is not in the Library Room. (where I can look up and verify things)  Grin

Mike  O'Laughlen, in my opinion, was an add-on, as a conspirator in the trial of the conspirators to bolster the Governments claim that this was a far reaching conspiracy, to murder the President.   He and Sam Arnold, if I recall, were summoned by Booth to meet and discuss a kidnap plot that would take Lincoln to Richmond, Va.  This was 1864. Both he and Arnold seemed amendable to helping Booth, as they were long time friends. Three days after the assassination, authorities were looking for both Arnold and O'Laughlen.

Early Saturday morning after the assassination, Detectives searched Booth's room at the National Hotel, and in Booth's trunk, were several letters, but what stood out to the police was, one signed by "Sam", which of course we know now, was the infamous "Sam" Letter, which also indicted O'Laughlen. When proven at the trial of the conspirators that it was indeed Sam Arnold and Mike O'Laughlen in the "Sam" letter, they were both convicted and sentenced in the conspiracy to assassinate Lincoln.

Sadly Mike  died from the Yellow Fever outbreak.

No, Booth didn't know Rathbone would be there. Rathbone was a last minute invitee after The Grants and others turned down Mary Todd's invites. I thought the kidding plan was off anyway, when Sam Arnold scoffed at how preposterous the idea was in the first place. Really, tying him up in the box and lowering him down by rope to the stage? I think Booth made up his mind that morning to kill when he went to Fords earlier that day to retrieve his mail, when he heard the Lincolns would be appearing that night IMO
