Live Blogging: Booth Escape Route Tour Part 2
My phone doesn’t want to add more pictures to my first “live blog” post, so I’m starting this second post to continue the tour.
Mathias Point, VA from the point where Booth and Herold set off from Maryland.
Drive by of Huckleberry, the home of Thomas Jones.
Crossing the bridge into Virginia.
Mrs. Quesenberry’s house.
Cleydael, the home of Dr. Richard Stuart, who denied Booth and Herold aid excepting a meal.
The telephone pole here marks the approximate location of the William Lucas cabin. Booth and Herold evicted the Lucases when they were denied by Dr. Stuart.
Drive by of where the ferry came into Port Royal, VA and the Peyton House where Booth and Herold attempted to find assistance.
We made it. Booth’s last breath was taken here at Garrett’s farm 148 years ago yesterday.
The last stop before we head back home to the Surratt House, Horne’s for ice cream and a bathroom break.
