I agree with you.
The people resembling the conspirators are all collected in the same area.
Furthermore, it would appear that they are not so much listening to
Lincoln but staring out into the crowd with their backs to the stage. You would
think if they were there for the speech they would have been further out
where they could see Lincoln.
You are right. It's pretty uncanny but apparently unconfirmable.
I wonder if there is a record of testimony from any of them that they were
there in the crowd. I haven't heard of it.
It is a mystery.
"Just the facts, ma'am."
Your Most Obediant Servant

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
the investigators not only of the suspects' IDs but also what they ate
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
claim, but all of the supposed conspirators appear in one tight cluster --
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
conviction on that evidence alone, but I find it hard to wholly ignore.
