Taking inspiration from one of my favorite books, John Wilkes Booth: Day by Day by Art Loux, I’m documenting a different Lincoln assassination or Booth family event each day on my Twitter account. In addition to my daily #OTD (On This Day) tweets, each Sunday I’ll be posting them here for the past week. If you click on any of the pictures in the tweet, it will take you to its individual tweet page on Twitter where you can click to make the images larger and easier to see. Since Twitter limits the number of characters you can type in a tweet, I often include text boxes as pictures to provide more information. I hope you enjoy reading about the different events that happened over the last week.
NOTE: After weeks of creating posts with multiple embedded tweets, this site’s homepage now tends to crash from trying to load all the different posts with all the different tweets at once. So, to help fix this, I’ve made it so that those viewing this post on the main page have to click the “Continue Reading” button below to load the full post with tweets. Even after you open the post in a separate page, it may still take awhile for the tweets to load completely. Using the Chrome browser seems to be the best way to view the tweets, but may still take a second to switch from just text to the whole tweet with pictures.
Richard Sloan wanted to share that the drawing of Withers fleeing from Booth was featured in his 1991 article, John Wilkes Booth’s Other Victim.
@LinConspirators Never seen that image of Weichmann before. Where does it come from?—

@USHxGuy It’s on the final page of this Lloyd Lewis article about Weichmann called This is to Certify: https://t.co/2klN5CvPmz—

Here is another tweet from this week that I thought might interest folks.
That brings us up to today. Next Sunday(ish) I’ll write another post covering the #OTD tweets from this coming week. If you don’t want to wait until then and want to know each anniversary on the day it happens, follow me on Twitter! My username is @LinConspirators (Twitter has a character limit not only for tweets, but for usernames as well so I had to condense it). Even if you don’t want to join Twitter, you can still see my tweets by just visiting my Twitter page on the web. You can also see my tweets by looking at the sidebar of this website if you’re using a desktop or laptop computer, or at the bottom if you are visiting on a mobile device.
Until next week!
Dave, I sent you an email over the summer regarding my family who lived next to the Ford’s theater on 10th street (actually next toTaltavul’s Saloon) and did not get a response from you. Did you receive it?
Thank you, your research and insights are much appreciated. I didn’t know Asia existed until today. I’m glad you illuminated this impressive woman’s story, and her contribution to American history.
