Annotation / Notes: Dr. Samuel Mudd (1833-1883) of Charles County is inextricably connected with the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Convicted of aiding John Wilkes Booth by tending to his broken leg during his flight from Washington, Mudd served time at Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas until his heroic efforts to save victims of a yellow fever epidemic helped earn an early release. Mudd's conduct and subsequent treatment in the aftermath of Lincoln's death has sparked a cottage industry of defenders and detractors.

Annotation / Notes: The life of Luther Martin (1748-1826) reminds us that not all patriots of the revolutionary generation were on the winning side of each issue. Martin was a talented lawyer elected to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. During the deliberations, he found that he could not support the concept of a strong central government as crafted by his fellow delegates. He was a leader in Maryland's unsuccessful anti-federalist opposition to ratification. Later, Martin was noteworthy as one of Aaron Burr's chief defenders during the former Vice President's treason trial.
