Stealing Lincoln's Body was one of the subjects presented to us at last year's Civil War Institute in Gettysburg. Craughwell was the speaker and his presentation was hilarious, given that the subject matter is at times both appalling and intriguing.

It's hard to believe this attempt to steal Lincoln's body actually occurred in our history, but it did. Craughwell's story was pretty much about the gang that couldn't think straight.

I thought the History Channel presentation was interesting and informative and I would recommend it.
