From Bill's blog:

Our final piece tonight is on a most intriguing character named Lucy Lambert Hale. Some will ask why is she on Bill Green's Maine? Because she's interesting!!! Also, I didn't mention in the story, but her mother was from Maine (Berwick) and she vacationed in Maine because here she met Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. Lucy's photo was on the body of John Wilkes Booth when he was shot dead in Virginia. She was one of five women so honored by America's most famous assassin. Her relationship with Booth remains a mystery, one which historians are starting to examine with more scrutiny. Her childhood home is part of the wonderful Woodman Institute Museum in Dover, New Hampshire. I wanted to learn more about Lucy and now I really want to learn more about Lucy. Here's a link to the museum.
