I have always enjoyed the theory that John Wilkes Booth did not die in that barn in 1865 but survived, hid out, and eventually committed suicide at
the turn of the century.
I don't really believe it, but why aren't there any pictures of Booth deceased? He died at that farm. His body was put on a barge and sent up the
Potomac. His autopsy was completed on a military barge. He was buried inside a military base. No pictures? All of the other conspirators were
photographed. Their execution was photographed. But no pictures of the dead assassin of the President? You would think that would have been a sought
after picture and printed in every publication---also to prove that Government got their man and dispel any rumors that he might have survived. Nope.
No pictures. Lots of rumors though.
