RICHARD LEGGITT River and hid in a tobacco barn where he was found by a troop of Union calvary on the morning The Virginia Department of Historic Resources of April 26. has announced plans to replace the historical The new historical sign, which will be installed marker on U.S. 301 just south of the King George- by the Virginia Department of Transportation this Caroline line marking the site where John Wilkes spring, will be called '~ssassin's End:' It will read: Booth was captured and killed by Union troops. "This is the site of Locust Hill, Richard Henry A previous marker near the site, where one of Garret's farm. Early on the morning of April the largest manhunts in the history of the nation 26, 1865, a 16th New York Cavalry detachment ended, was stolen by vandals four months ago. cornered John Wilkes Booth, the assassin According to the state, the new marker is being of President Abraham Lincoln, and his co- produced and paid for by the Surratt Society, a conspirator, David E.

Booth was laid on the porch of the Garrett Potomac River and south down what is now U.S. house and died about sunrise. The house and barn 301. Booth took a ferry across the Rappahannock stood a short distance from this spot." , ./ In ii dl ,el , This chair is one of a set of four that a Northern Neck couple purchased for $100. at a private estate sale about five years ago. The fabric upholstery has worn HENRY LANE off' of the HULL slip seats, revealing t h e original mohair covering, which shows signs of wear. They are questioning whether reupholstering is worth the expense. The chairs still are fairly sturdy, but one of them needs regluing. The wood is mahogany, and the finish is original. $100 for these chairs was quite a bargain, as they are worth at least twice that amount, even as is. Regluing the one chair, and recovering should not be prohibitive, and the overall value will increase proportionately. I suggest retaining the original mohair, and applying the new fabric on top of it. Old mohair is rare to find, and it is part of the set's history. These are nice saberleg, or Idismos, side chairs, and they date from the 1840s. The terms come from the shape of the two front legs, which resemble sabers, or from the Greek word for temple chairs, which these replicate. They are represent the American Empire style, which was a legacy from the French Empire period introduced by Napoleon Bonaparte at the turn of the eighteenth century. Unlike the succeeding motif, i.e., nineteenth-century Victorian, Empire furniture and decorative arts remain popular. As a rule the pieces are plainer, and more utilitarian. Indeed, Empire has risen in popularity, whereas Victorian has been in a slump for the past generation. To be in keeping with the Empire style, an appropriate fabric would be a striped satin-finished cloth, should the mohair not be able to be salvaged. Next Saturday I shall be participating, as I have done for the past 14 years, in the Saint Clement's Island - Potomac River Museum's annual appraiser fair at the museum at Colton's Point, in Saint Mary's County. I am always pleased to meet Northern Neck readers there, and look forward to appraising the treasures that they bring to the fair.
