Join us at INSIDE THE WALLS on Facebook!!!
My writing partner John Elliott and I are producing a book (and possibly a documentary)on the Lincoln conspirators and their experiences inside the walls of the various prisons (in particular, the Old Arsenal Penitentiary) where they were held before, during and after their trial. As you know, some of the conspirators were hanged almost immediately after the trial ended while others were sent away to Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas (off the Florida Keys) to serve out their sentences. Our book will not only cover these elements of the story but also include the forensic study of the ten Alexander Gardner photos that were taken of the executions on July 7, 1865. Plus much much more.
We wanted to let you know that we have now set up a page on Facebook called INSIDE THE WALLS which we encourage you to join as fans. It will allow you to keep up to date on what is happening with our project(s), ask questions or join into our Discussion Board.
Just sign into Facebook and then search for Inside the Walls. When you get there, join up as a FAN and you are in. We look forward to seeing you there.
Note, as some folks are not comfortable being on Facebook but still want to be kept informed of our progress, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and email address. In the subject line write the word BOOK and I will add you to this update list.
We look forward to seeing you on INSIDE THE WALLS and talking to you about the Lincoln conspiracy. We want to hear what you have to say so please tell us your thoughts and ask any questions you may have. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll do our best to find out as soon as possible.
