Abstract

The document, rediscovered in 1977, describes an 1875 conversation with Andrew Johnson on a train out of Knoxville, Tennessee, shortly before Johnson's death. The discussion that took place was significant in detailing parts of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln ten years earlier.
