Example text

On the morning of 14 April 1865, Lincoln called together his war cabinet for a brief meeting, during which Grant reviewed the surrender of Richmond with them. When the meeting was concluded Grant was able to make his excuses and went back to his hotel to collect his wife and belongings. Booth too had heard of Grant’s arrival in Washington and watched as the crowds continued their merry celebrations at the expense of people like himself. The overzealous nature of the town’s elation left Booth with a strong desire to wipe the smiles off their faces and so he set about planning his revenge.

M. Their sons, now aged eleven and seven were both fast asleep in their bedrooms, as were the servants, who occupied rooms at the opposite end of the house. Ann and Billy did not share the same bedroom, so after wishing each other good night, they retired to their respective rooms for the night. Each of them had a firearm in their bedrooms – Billy was armed with a revolver, while Ann, strangely, had a 12-bore double-barrelled shotgun. While neither of them ever expected to use the weapons, they felt safer and slept more soundly knowing that they had them should the need ever arise.

The status of Billy Woodward, as a man of wealth and position elevated the investigation above the lowly police officers of the local police force, and immedately involved the Nassau County prosecutor and the Oyster Bay chief of police, who began gathering the details of the night’s misadventure. Like others in Nassau, and even those living in the greater area of the Bahamas, the chief of police and the prosecutor were well aware of the gossip surrounding Billy and Ann Woodward and of the public humiliation she had experienced because of her husband’s various philanderings.
