Here’s a sample of what occurred on this day in the Lincoln conspiracy trial:
- The court did not meet today, it having been set aside as a National Day of Mourning and Prayer
- Lewis Powell was visited by a woman who may have been formerly enslaved by the Powell family
The June 1, 1865 entry for the trial of the Lincoln assassination conspirators is now released and has more information. Please click here to access it. You can also access it through The Trial homepage.
Throughout May and June of 2020, I am publishing a day by day chronology of the trial of the Lincoln assassination conspirators. This includes almost daily posts announcing the release of what happened at the conspiracy trial 155 years ago. For more information about the creation of this project please click here.
