Annotation / Notes: Based on the astonishing records of a Jesuit-owned estate in Charles County that lasted for 175 years, Walsh examined 233 tenants, and the effect of their short term vs. long term leases on resource waste or conservation.

Carter, Samuel, III. The Riddle of Dr. Mudd. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1974.
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.
