Oldroyd was a collector of books, papers, medals, autograph letters and documents, furniture and other materials from the Lincoln homestead in Springfield, Ill., having lived for ten years in that home and eight years later in the house in which Lincoln died following his assassination on April 14, 1865. A portion of his collection of over 3,000 items, the "Oldroyd Lincoln Memorial Collection" is now on display at the Ford's Theatre and Lincoln Museum in Washington, DC. In this volume Oldroyd recounts the events leading up to and following the assassination, including several chapters on the trials of the conspirators. Oldroyd recounts in great detail the trip he took in May, 1901, in which he traced the route that John Wilkes Booth took during his escape and capture and interviewed several who aided the assassin in his flight. Oldroyd's account is enhanced by his references to the many sources in his collection and augmented further in the accompanying 82 illustrations. (Inventory #: 30766)
