Samuel Alexander Mudd (December 20, 1833 – January 10, 1883) was an American physician who was imprisoned for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth in the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. While working as a doctor in Southern Maryland, Mudd also employed slaves on his tobacco farm, and declared his belief in slavery as a God-given institution. The Civil War seriously damaged his business, especially when Maryland abolished slavery in 1864. At this time, he first met Booth, who was planning to kidnap Lincoln, and Mudd was seen in company with three of the conspirators. But his part in the plot, if any, remains unclear.

  • Samuel Alexander Mudd (December 20, 1833 – January 10, 1883) was an American physician who was imprisoned for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth in the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. While working as a doctor in Southern Maryland, Mudd also employed slaves on his tobacco farm, and declared his belief in slavery as a God-given institution. The Civil War seriously damaged his business, especially when Maryland abolished slavery in 1864. At this time, he first met Booth, who was planning to kidnap Lincoln, and Mudd was seen in company with three of the conspirators. But his part in the plot, if any, remains unclear. After mortally wounding Lincoln on April 14, 1865, Booth rode with conspirator David Herold to Mudd’s home in the early hours of the 15th for surgery on his fractured leg, before crossing into Virginia. Some time that day, Mudd must have learned of the assassination, but did not report Booth’s visit to the authorities for another 24 hours. This appeared to link him to the crime, as did his various changes of story under interrogation, and on April 26, he was arrested. A military commission found him guilty of aiding and conspiring in a murder, and he was sentenced to life imprisonment, escaping the death penalty by a single vote. Mudd was pardoned by President Andrew Johnson and released from prison in 1869. Despite repeated attempts by family members and others to have it expunged, his conviction has never been overturned.

  • Fu arrestato e condannato per favoreggiamento e cospirazione, insieme a John Wilkes Booth ed altri, nell'omicidio di Abraham Lincoln. Nel carcere dove era imprigionato, l'isola fortezza Fort Jefferson scoppiò, nel 1867, un'epidemia di febbre gialla per la quale perì anche il medico del carcere. Mudd ne prese il posto, adoperandosi per arginare la diffusione della malattia. Gli stessi soldati di guarnigione alla fortezza scrissero una petizione in suo favore al presidente Andrew Johnson il quale concesse la grazia e Mudd venne rilasciato nel 1869. Alcuni storici attribuirono al suo cognome l'origine dell'espressione Your name is mud ("Il tuo nome è fango"). In realtà la frase è stata riportata nel dizionario Slang - A dictionary of the turf di John Badcock nel 1823, dieci anni prima della nascita di Mudd, confutando tale teoria. (it)
