The Last Lincoln Conspirator

Lecture By :
Andrew Jampoler
The assassination of President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theater on the evening of April 14, 1865, is a well-known and pivotal event in American history. What may be less well known are the strands of places and people that link this infamous event to Capitol Hill and its vicinity.

Join us on Monday June 5, 2023, when writer and historian Andrew Jampoler will explore connections between the city of Washington, Capitol Hill and the Lincoln conspirators.  Jampoler is the author of  The Last Lincoln Conspirator: John Surratt’s Flight from the Gallows as well as other books on American history.

Admission to the lecture is free but a reservation is required. Places can be reserved through Hill Center three weeks before the lecture.
