His strong and outspoken Confederate sympathies led to his arrest and imprisonment at numerous facilities including Fort McHenry and New York's Fort Lafayette. Upon his release in 1862 he moved to Montreal, before running the blockade and arriving in Richmond in 1864. It has been suggested that he was an acquaintance of John Wilkes Booth, and it was feared in 1861 that Kane might have involvement in an assassination plot against Abraham Lincoln upon his inauguration. Despite his checkered past, in the 1870s he served as both Sheriff and Mayor of Baltimore. rnProvenance: Jon Bischel (Nutmeg Sale 27, 2000)
