The court martial papers are fascinating. Thought it was interesting that the number one piece of evidence, exhibit 1, is a photo of "Booth" only the Booth in their exhibit is Edwin Thomas Booth not John Wilkes Booth.


Note the use of the superscripted (raised) "k" in the signature for Mr. Aiken at the bottom of the document, so that "Fredk" is a shortened form of "Frederick," like "Wm" (with superscripted "m") is short for "William."
