The traggity took place at Ford Theater, Washington D.C
Mary was a catholic woman and lived in Washington D.C with her husband and 3 kids. She loved the South and the Confederacy. She hated the Union .
Lincoln was killed on April 14,1865
Mary was a southern woman and hated Lincoln. After the Confederates defeat in the Civil War she wanted him dead. She was arrest on the 30th and was innocent but she was convicted in the military and was hung
We tell others because of all the people that were accused of the Lincoln assassination. Also she was the first female to me killed by the Federal government.
One surprise to me is that since she was Innocent but she was still hung. Also her son was accused but he fled to Canada than later Europe.
To help you understand Mary wasn't apart of the Lincoln assassination. She was convicted by the military. Also she was the first woman to be executed by the U.S Federal Government.
An extra thing Mary had to do is turn her row house into a board house in result of financials difficulty.It was right by the Ford theater and made her a suspect and one man in the house blamed her for telling Booth to kill Lincoln,
