RHS Member Ed Issacs featured in the History Channel Magazine
We were so excited to see our very own Ed Issacs' article "Guarding the Lincoln Conspirators" featured in the History Channel Magazine's September/October 2012 issue. Ed conducted years of research into his family history revealing several ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. After coming into the possession of his great-great-great grandfather's Civil War diary he realized he had the first known documentation listing the names of the soldiers who guarded the men (and woman) hanged for conspiring in Lincoln's assassination. Ed came to the RHS earlier this summer to display some of his memorabilia and talk about what he has learned.
