Accokeek Iron Furnace Marker

Marker inscription:

This modern road follows the route over which a mule-drawn wagon delivered the body of John Wilkes Booth, President Lincoln’s assassin, from Caroline County to Belle Plains for transport to the Navy Yard for an autopsy.

Below this location, Russell “Rabbit” Sullivan was born and raised on modern-day Lorenzo Drive. Playing for the well-known, semi-pro White Oak Ball Team, Russell turned pro in 1951 with the Major League Detroit Tigers.
