While visiting with Dorothea Barstow, I record this episode from the Sam Mudd House, known for the location where John Wilkes Booth received medical attention for his broken leg after the Lincoln assassination.
Join us in hearing about the life of Dr. Mudd, before and after that infamous day, while I sit on the very sofa Booth was initially examined on.
We also discuss the family history of the house and the quilt that brings it all together.
