Historian David Goetz explores Confederate Col. John S. Mosby’s role in the Lincoln Conspiracies and the efforts to capture him and those who wanted Lincoln captured. He explores the broad and deep Confederate underground system of spies and other clandestine operators. He examines Mosby’s role and that of his Rangers within the larger context of the operation, Mosby’s communications system with Richmond and the importance of cover stories. Goetz then traces how Mosby Ranger Lewis Powell was drawn into clandestine work by the Confederate Secret Service and ultimately introduced to John Wilkes Booth. This fascinating story is not to be missed.
