The bulk of the collection is from 1865 and consists of photographs, newspapers, artifacts, and letters related to the Lincoln conspirators and their trial before a military commission. Included are photographs of the conspirators and the generals who either served as trial judges or guarded the conspirators during the trial.

Artifacts include a swatch of fabric from the dress of actress Laura Keene, who cradled Lincoln's head in her lap after he was shot. The collection also includes letters from the generals regarding their parts in the trial and execution.
