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.
