The Surratt Courier, is an educational newsletter that has been in publication since 1976, and has provided a way for scholars to further explore topics relating to the mid-nineteenth century, with articles especially focusing on life during the Civil War and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Historians, young and old, from professors to hobbyists, have contributed to this newsletter that has been distributed to thousands of Surratt Society members world-wide. And at times, these articles have featured information of newly discovered evidence and artifacts that have solved long pondered mysteries.
