Brooded Over It.
1 d i ': T he -M?- Iii!Z Ti!!e'
We quote an article recently read by
us under above headlines, and will to
the best of our recollection give the
readers of THE TimEs a little insight
into matters at the time of the assassi
nation of President Lincoln.
"Prof. Lewis J. Welchman died i
Thursday night at the home of his sis
ter Mrs. (his. 0. Crawley of .Anderson
Ind. With the c \ cetion of John Sur
ratt. now in Paltore P .1 echman
is the last ' ivt t n th :rg of John
Wiiks Kooth the .a.1U Of President
Lincoln. : -\a'ouh hip evidence was
true in detail Prof. \Weichman has al
ways brooded over the matter and fre
quently said that his testimony was the
conviction and sentence to the gallows
of Mrs. Surratt."
At the time of the assassination the
writer was a confederate soldier and a
prisoner of war at Point Lookout. Mary
land, having been with many more
confederate soldiers captured March
25th, 1S65 at Fort Steadman in the des
perate attempt of General Lee to break
through the Federal lines, and to get
his ragged and half starved soldiers
from the eutrenchments around Peters
burg and Iichmond. positions they
had so gallantly held for eleven long
and trying months against unlimited
resources, and overwhelming numbers
of the northern invaders, and for the
further purpose of uniting the army of
Northern Virginia with the army of
General Johnson then at some point in
President Lincoln was shot on the
night of April 14th, 1865. and early on
the morning of April 15th. the news of
the shooting reached Point Lookout.
There were five thousand Federal
soldiers then at Point Lookout fo- the
purpose of guarding the eighteen thous
and Confederate soldiers that was there
as prisoners of war.
Well do we remember the commotion
among many of the Federal soldiers
when it was said. "Lincoln is killed, he
was killed last night at Ford's The
The Federal soldiers were very bit
ter against the assassin and could they
have found him out they would have
made a short job of the matter with
As well as we can remember there
was no one accused of the killing and
the whole matter completely wrapped
in mystery, although it has been often
written since, that John Wilkes Booth
was plainly recognized as the one who
committed the deed.
The War Department soon went to
work to try and find out, locate and
capture the slayer of Mr. Lincoln, and
after some little time the War depart
ment in their investigations revealed
the fact as they saw it, that there had
been a conspiracy formed in Washing
ton to take the life of Lincoln, and sev
eral parties were spotted as conspira
tors and arrested, and among them
was the unfortunate Mrs. Surratt. This
much briefly covers the matter of the
accused in Washington City as actors
in that bloody drama.
The War 'Department did not rest
with accusing persons in Washington,
but reached out for more and implica
ted Jefferson Davis -President of the
the Confederate States of America.
and some of his cabinet, the names of
whom the writer has forgotten.
A short while after arrests had been
made in Washington, there appeared
in flaming headlines in the New York
Herald " Five hundred thousand dollars
reward for the capture of .Jeffer-son Da
vis and so many of his cabinet,"~ calling
them by names, implicating them in the
killing of Lincoln.
In the course of a short while Mr.
Davis wvas captured and sent to Foi-tress
MIonroe to await further developments
in his case, while the part of his cabi
net wanted, had in the meantime, made
their escape by reaching Cuba, and
then taking passage on some steamer
MIr. Lincoln was, its is custom with
such worthie. disposed of with great
pomp. and was interred at his home
in Springfield, Ill., without any jury of
inquest being held and without any
charge being law fully brought against
any person or persons for bis murder.
It'soon leaked out that John Wilkes
Booth was the assassin and that he
had made his escape in the confusion
that followed after the pistol had been
fired through a door in rear of the
building and that he had mounted a
horse that was in waiting for him. and
that he had fled towards Virginia.
As soon as quiet could be restored
there was a detachment of Federal
cavalry detailed and started out im
mediately for the capture of Booth
alive, or his body dead, and to get the
large rewvard otfered.
After searching some little time for
Booth his wvhereabouts became known
and the readers of THE TIFJ'S pretty
generally know what wvas the fate of
John Wilkes Booth.
Booth the head of the conspiracy and
the slayer of Lincoln being disposed of
and parties implicated in the killing
being in prison the question arose,
whether they should be tried by civil
law or by militai-y lawv. Some contend
ed foi- tr'ial by civil law while others by
militaryv. Finally by the opinion, I
believe of Andrew Johnson who was
Vice-President under Lincoln. and who
on the death of Lincoln assumed the
government, it was decided to try the
accused by military law.
A military commission wvas appoint
ed consisting of Holt, Dana, Staunton
and othei-s, their names we have for
gotton though equally as unfeeling and
as brutal as those we have men tioneQ.
The militai-y commission being ready
and desirous for the blood of the ac
cused, they, including Mrs. Surratt
were put on trial and the ease against
them commenced, and many liars as
wvitnesses against the accused were or
dered to be on hand.
I cannot now remember- so well the
evidence that condemned the men that
was hung along wvith MIrs. Stirratt.
save that Booth and them boarded at
the house of M1rs. Surratt.
Among the charges that I-s. Suar
ratt was condemned on, or went a long
ways toward convicting her, was Booth
and the three young men that were
hung. boar-ded at Mi-s. Surrat t's house
and on the night that President Lin
coln was shot some parties were pas
sing M1rs. Surr-att's house and while
doing so, Mrs. Surra! t hoisted the
window sash, leaned cut and asked the
question "I1s the President shot?
Among the party mentioned was a
ser-geant in the Federal army. The
sergeant r-epoi-ted this much against
i-s. Surr-att and wec have no doubt a
great deal more and was well rewar-d
ed with blood money that it was said
wvas so plentiful at that spteful a'nd

The trial was a farce and a mockery
L1nI5 of that dlisgraceful military corn- h
mission against the accused that it can o
be safely said that their doom was cc
sealed before the trial ever began. th
The accused employed Hon. Beverdy T]
Johnson. a distinguished and successful fo
lawyer of Baltimore to defend them; ec
and it was said that he understood the tl
ease and their defence and by the in- at
sulting manner, and by the arbitrary ,p
rulings of -that brutal military corn- tU
mission" he left the court in disgust le
and the prisoners to their fixed fate. W
The only power now left to save the a
condemned was executive clemency. es
and we do not remember that any one in
at all interceded in their behalf save hi
one daughter of Mrs. Surratt. c
It was said that 31rs. Surratt's daugh
ter went to the White House to see W
President Johnson for the purpose of L
interceding in behalf of her innocent
mother. as she believed, as well as L
thousands of others who believed in her B
innocence, but to no avail, for it was
said that Johnson became beastly drunk,
feigned sudden illness and would allow
no one to see or speak with him on any
matter whatever throughout the whole
day. and by this unpardonable coward- fr
ice Johnson became a party to the mur- hi
der of Mrs. Surratt and made room for sa
the writing of the blackest and blood
iest pc.ge of American history. S1
The charge of being an accessory to tl
the killing of Lincoln against Jeff Davis sl
became so ridiculous that the accusers b
dropped the charge and fell back on K
the same old charge of treason and tc
kept him imprisoned for two years If
longer and in the meantime they never w
failed to heap on him all the indigni- ai
ties that Yankee spite and spleen could y<
conceive, and finally had to abandon T
even the charge of treason and liberate
him with the humiliating confession
that Jeff Davis was not guilty of trea
son and that the charge could not be
Jefferson Davis lived beyond the al- A
lotted days of man and died loved and te
mourned by the noblest people on
"God's green earth." e
Thirty-seven years have nearly elap- A

Lincoln and the cruel murder of Mrs. w
Surratt, and besides the parties one
and all that figured so conspiculously
in the trial has durfng those thirty
seven years including Professor Welch
man who had so good reason so long to
brood over it," have passed from A
earth to eternity and at the day of final ti
reckoning we believe the blood of mur- B
dered Mrs. Surratt will be required at yi
the hands of "that brutal military com- b<
mission" and their paid-up perjurers. b:
Mr. Lincoln's death was very much ti
deplored by many Southern people, we B
believe, but with all this it did not alter
one item of his record as an enemy of
the South and the South's interest. He
hadhis faults and his shortcomings,and 01
