Hello -

   Please join us for the next in our regular monthly series of Department
   of the Interior Library Park Ranger Speaker Series lectures, "The
   Investigation of the Lincoln Assassination: Tales of Special Judge
   Advocate Henry L. Burnett" next Tuesday, May 15th from 1:00 - 1:45 pm in
   the DOI Library.

   This month's program will look at the aftermath of the assassination of
   President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre on April 15, 1865.  The
   assassination initiated one of the largest federal investigations ever
   seen in United States history.  Secretary of War Edwin Stanton
   coordinated the investigation and called upon a number of officials from
   the military and the War Department to aid in the inquiry. Included
   among these officials was General Henry L. Burnett, Judge Advocate
   General for the Military Department of Ohio. Burnett was inevitably
   given a special task by Secretary Stanton, to serve as the Special Judge
   Advocate for the trial of the Lincoln Assassination conspirators.

   Please join Ford's Theatre Park Ranger Scott Schultz as he portrays
   General Henry L. Burnett (in full dress uniform) for a Living History
   program on the investigation of the Lincoln Assassination and the trial
   of the conspirators. Learn the behind the scenes stories of the inquiry
   and trial from the man who presided over the proceedings.

   All are welcome to attend, government and general public.  The
   Department of the Interior Library is located in the Main Interior
   Building, located at 1849 C Street, NW, Room 1151 in Washington.
   Please call the DOI Library at (202) 208-3796 or contact us via e-mail
