April 14, 1865 | The Conspirators
Thomas Ewing, defense attorney for Dr. Samuel Mudd, pressed that it was no crime for a doctor to follow his calling and help the sick and injured who found their way to his home, even if it was the man who assassinated the President of the United States, John Wilkes Booth. Ewing argued that the prosecution did not prove that Mudd had participated with any knowledge or in any way in the assassination of the president.
