Yes.  I know the book.  I went to the historian at   Fords and he told me 
that the NPS examined the photos and allegations and  did  not think it 
It was an uncanny resemblence but Fords  didn't believe  it.

Plus I think there is no record of Mudd being  in DC that  day.

The pics aae fascinating and I have a lot of  issues with the  NPS but I 
lean toward their view.  The  historian seemed to be pretty  straight up. 

Unfortunately, we do not have access to those marvelous computer  
enhancement techniques in use on the various "CSI" TV shows that magically  inform 
the investigators not only of the suspects' IDs but also what they ate  for 
supper the night before, so the matter must go unresolved.  I am not  
convinced the photos show the Booth conspirators at the Inauguration, but I am  also 
not convinced that they do not.  If it was just a question of faces  
scattered randomly throughout the crowd, I could much more easily dismiss the  
claim, but all of the supposed conspirators appear in one tight cluster -- and  
as I recollect, everybody in that cluster has a strong resemblance to one 
or  another of the known conspirators.  You might not be able to get a court  
conviction on that evidence alone, but I find it hard to wholly ignore.
