Mike Stone, etc.

You wrote above about the votes in congress! Just what Southern State representatives voted for these causes?

Iirc Senator Andrew Johnson of Tennessee did. I'm less sure about the HoR.

I agree that not many Southerners took part in the votes, but that was a consequence of their own decision to walk out. Both houses still had a quorum, so the votes were perfectly in order.

And after all, depending on one's views as to the legality of secession, the Confederates were either rebels or foreigners. In neither case were they entitled to a voice in the government whilst denying its authority.

Med. there have been several hundred books written on this subject.  Theories about who was behind it run from Jefferson Davis, to Sec. of War, Stanton. 
There are also theories that while Booth was the public face, and the primary actor, there were many others involved, some were Union officers.
 
 
 

Why would Stanton be suspect? He wanted to become a President too  ? :P 
 
 
 
I think the fact that the conspiracy also targeted all in the line of succession up to Stanton, raised suspicions.
