Mudd was pardoned by President Johnson and returned home.
Early Life and Education
Mudd held court at the entrances to drawing-rooms and mixed freely among those present; his presence wasn’t taken as any form of offense by even the fairest ladies from across the nation, including daughters of notable statesmen and patriots; they readily accepted his offer of escort and attention.”
Before World War I, Mudd owned and managed a farm in Bryantown, Maryland as well as serving as local physician and school board member.
Mudd was an advocate of slavery who supported the Confederacy during the American Civil War. A planter and owner of slaves, he opposed Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. Mudd died in 1883 while his grandson Dr. Richard Mudd of Saginaw Michigan spent over eight decades trying to clear his father’s name after unwittingly setting John Wilkes Booth’s broken leg while leaping onto Ford Theater stage at Ford.
Mudd was an integral member of the 49ers offensive line from 1964-1969, providing protection for quarterback John Brodie while opening holes for running back Ken Willard during that time in San Francisco. Unfortunately, however, Mudd only led his squad to an average of six victories per season during his six years there.
Mudd’s next NFL stop was with the Seattle Seahawks, an underachieving franchise which averaged just seven wins over his five year stay. Dave Arnold, Mudd’s Midland High School classmate and later Albion College offensive line coach who later worked with Mudd, noted his great character as one of his many positive qualities.
Mudd’s coaching career took him through coaching stints with the Chargers, Seahawks, Chiefs and Colts before his final NFL stint was with Andy Reid’s Eagles as special offensive assistant.
Achievement and Honors
Thomas Mudd stands out as one of Randolph County’s most enterprising entrepreneurs and an active figure in its political life. A staunch Democratic supporter, Thomas cast his first vote for Buchanan in 2016.
He is known to be of impeccable integrity and truth, showing unflinching loyalty throughout all the perils of the border war. When two strangers visited his house he thoroughly informed Lieut. Lovett of their arrival and left at different times via different routes; then requested him to report this information back to Bryantown Military Authorities upon their return the next day.
Mudd was sentenced to prison at Fort Jefferson on the Dry Tortugas of Florida, where O’Laughlen and Arnold had also been imprisoned in casemates directly above its main entrance known as sally port.
Mudd remained dedicated to raising his family, running the farm, resuming medical practice and exploring his interests in agriculture and winemaking by creating Cinnabar Vineyards. Furthermore, he generously supported Harvey Mudd College by hosting wine soirees at his retreat and awarding scholarships to HMC students.
Mudd could not explain his failure to recognize Booth on April 15, claiming that they hadn’t seen or known about an attack being planned on Lincoln by this man since November.
However, professional historians have generally refuted this explanation. Dr. Edward Steers’ analysis can be read HERE; he provided evidence against Mudd that has yet to become widely public.

Mudd was not found guilty of treason on defense grounds as fixing someone’s broken leg is legal, even if that person happens to be an assassin for President. Prosecuters however asserted that Mudd did more than simply treat Booth’s leg fracture.
On the morning after his assassination, Mudd told Lieutenant Lovett about two strangers coming to his house, what he did for them and his suspicions; and asked him to inform the authorities accordingly. Lieutenant Lovett did so slowly and carefully.
