Mary Surratt, alleged member of the conspiracy to assassination president Abraham Lincoln.  She is also the first woman executed by the United States' federal government.  Mrs. Surratt, a widow, had to convert her row house in Washington, D.C. into a boardinghouse as a result of financial hardship. Located a few blocks from Ford’s Theatre, this house served a meeting place for John Wilkes Booth and others who conspired to assassinate the president. It was Surratt’s association with Booth that ultimately led to her conviction, though debate continues as to the extent of her involvement and whether it warranted so harsh a sentence.
