Displayed here are items of a Canadian nature which have
an association with Abraham Lincoln. Of some note in this area are the
accounts of a number of Canadians, mostly Montrealers, who had a
direct link with Lincoln's assassins. It is no secret that there were
Confederate sympathizers in British North America, especially in Montreal.
During the 1867 trial of John H. Surratt, the son of Mary Surratt, several
Montrealers were called to testify in Washington as to his behaviour and
political activities while resident in Montreal and vicinity, prior to, and
after Lincoln's assassination.
