Trailer - The Conspirator

Mary Surratt - accused of being a conspirator in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln - was tried before a military tribunal, instead of a jury of her peers, which meant that different standards of justice applied during her trial.  To this day, people argue whether she received due process.

This clip is a trailer for "The Conspirator," a recreation of events surrounding the prosecution and trial of Mary Surratt.
