Samuel Alexander Mudd I, M.D. (December 20, 1833 – January 10, 1883) was an American physician who was convicted and imprisoned for aiding and conspiring with John Wilkes Booth in the 1865 assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. He was pardoned by President Andrew Johnson and released from prison four years later.

[edit] Early years

Born in Charles County, Maryland, Mudd was the fourth of ten children of Henry Lowe and Sarah Ann Reeves Mudd. He grew up on "Oak Hill", his father's tobacco plantation of several hundred acres which was located 30 miles (48 km) southeast of downtown Washington, D.C., and which was worked by 89 slaves.[1][2]

Dr. Mudd saved many lives while he was imprisoned. Yellow Fever was taking lives. The prisioners wrote petitions to President Johnson and I think that's why President Johnson gave him a pardon! AND this is where we get the old saying when someone does us wrong we say "Now your name is MUD!" News commentator Roger Mudd is related to Dr. Mudd.

Dr Mudd's house was still standing and a museum in 1997. If nothing's happened since then it should still be there, not far from Waldorf in Charles County, MD.
