Manhun t : The John Wi l kes Boo t h T ra i l presen t ed by Pau l Goebbe l Tuesday, April 26 6:30 p.m. Spillette Meeting Room This is the true story of the manhunt for John Wilkes Booth after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln presented by historical reenactor, Paul Goebbel. All the people quoted in this presentation are real and were alive during the great manhunt of April 1865. All quotes come from original sources: letters, manuscripts, trial transcripts, newspapers, government reports, pamphlets, books, and other documents. What happened in Washington, D.C. in the spring of 1865 on the trail of John Wilkes Booth in the swamps and rivers, forests, and fields during those twelve days is far too incredible to have been manufactured.
