  1. I'm blown away by this website and your research. Very well done, and incredibly informative. Thank you for sharing the work you've put into researching this fascinating historical figure. I had no idea of Ownesby's book, either, which I will be checking out ASAP.

  2. Fascinating site. Powell will always be an intriguing character in our history. I also discovered the book 'The Open Doorway' which I downloaded on my Kindle.

  3. You could tell just by looking at him what a kind, generous, beautiful person he was. He was a brave soldier who was misguided by the CSS and Booth. He was a fascinating man and I wish a movie would be made about his life. Thanks to Betty Ownsby's biography, the real Lewis Powell has emerged after all these years.

  4. What a wonderful site. Most of what I have read here is totally new to me, I'm so glad I came across lewisthorntonpowell.com! This deeper dive into the man behind the infamous blue eyes is very welcome.

  5. I have been researching Lewis and his involvement in the Lincoln assissantion for a few years. I had just now seen this website today and it's amazing. I absolutely love that his family history is even included here. Great job, I'm blown away.
