A movie about Mary Surratt and the assassination of President Lincoln




As always, history is a bit more complicated than "The conspirator", a 2-hour movie about the story of the first woman executed in the US.

Nevertheless, I think that it was unfair to "hang" Mary Surratt over the assassination of President Lincoln.

Mary Surratt was John Surratt's mother.  She was probably guilty of defending her son but it's hard to see how she had anything directly with the assassination.

Nevertheless, it was a very good movie and another reminder of how divisive and complicated The Civil War was.
