          Richard, it was (President) Andrew Johnson who described the Surratt boardinghouse as "the nest where the egg was hatched." This was his rationale for refusing the clemency importunities of Anna... more

          I haven't looked at the Lincoln assassination in quite a while, but I just wanted to get the IDEA out there about the Surratt boarding house possibly being analogous to Hans' Bavarian Beer Garden! I... more
