That was a lot of money...
Very timely, sadly all the Aussies at the Oscars came away without the main prize.
That's a real piece of history!
Un documento histórico muy oportuno, buena idea.Un saludo, Ángel
So relevant Lulu. That's quite a sum for those days. Did they ever find out who murdered him? (I know I should know!)
Yes, a lot of money then (Peter, the race was a close one this year! PerthDailyPhoto, yup it was John Wilkes Booth in the end, a disgruntled actor to put it mildly! They managed to catch him within 2 weeks or so.)
I finished re-reading Manhunt by James Swanson recently. Quite a story to the search for Booth and his associates!And yes, that was a tremendous amount of money. In the end, the reward money did get divided up into pieces.
I love how the poster refers to Lincoln as "our late beloved President"... I so want to the movie!! (this wanted poster though is a bit creepy to me)...
A timely exhibit. A great piece of history. And from the War Department!
Nice piece of history.
This is fascinating--thank you, Lulu!
So interesting! I didn't remember that it took that long to catch him. (Shame on me...). I think I'll have to read "Manhunt."
An interesting bit of history.
I am gradually catching up with my blog reading, Lulu! This one is a gem. Amazing that a poster can make such a terrific photo :).
