Additional Details:
This old Citadel, now Fort Jefferson National Monument, was a formidable coastal defense about the time of the American Civil War. Following termination of hostilities the Fortress was used as a Federal Prison, and became known as the American Devil's Island. Here Dr. Samuel Mudd of Maryland was imprisoned for giving medical aid to John Wilkes Booth, assassin of President Lincoln
