We’ve all heard the story about how John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theater. But did you ever hear the story about the men who drove a mummy around the U.S. claiming it was Booth? Or the one about the gang of criminals who tried to steal Lincoln’s corpse? Or how about the Army major who was in Lincoln’s box that night who later went insane and tried to murder his entire family? These are strange but true stories your history teacher forgot to tell you.
