Thomas Craughwell and Michael Kline talked about the Baltimore Plot -- a plan to assassinate president-elect Abraham Lincoln in February 1861 as he made his way by train to Washington, D.C., for his March 4 inauguration. Mr. Kline showed some slides during his presentation, which included the legal case against the plotters and why there was no trial. There was no question period.

“The Baltimore Plot - Fact or Fiction?” was a program at the 16th annual Lincoln Forum Symposium, held November 17, 2011, at the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. “Lincoln and the Home Front: The Civil War Comes to Washington” was the second year of a five-year focus on the Civil War sesquicentennial. close
