In this episode I tell you about the lives of two men, John Wilkes Booth, the man who shot Abraham Lincoln, and Boston Corbett, the man who shot Booth. Or did he? Stories persist over the years that the man Boston Corbett shot was not really John Wilkes Booth, and that Booth lived on for decades after.
