Additional Details:
Inside Fort Jefferson, down its labyrinth of gloomy corridors the visitor can envision the tragedy of Dr. Samuel Mudd, sentenced there as punishment for having set the broken leg of John Wilkes Booth, performing heroic work in a yellow fever epidemic among the garrison and prisoners and pardoned too late to do him any good. Fort Jefferson is now a National Monument
