Reward Poster for Booth, Herold, and Surratt



This was one of the earliest "Wanted" posters to bear a fugitive's photograph. Hastily assembled and issued during the few days that Booth was at large, this poster incorporated carte-de-visite photographs of the conspirators, including one of Booth that had been produced as a publicity shot for the actor. Both Herold's and Surratt's names are misspelled on the poster
