    (May 10, 1838-April 26, 1865)
    Murdered President Abraham Lincoln
    Believe he yelled 'Sic semper tyrannis!' (Latin for 'Thus always to tyrants') when he shot Lincoln (although others dispute that)
    He killed President Abraham Lincoln (April 14, 1865).
    He hid in a barn and refused to be taken alive, so they set fire to the barn (April 26, 1865).
    The FBI (50 years later) were not positive the burnt body was actually, Booth.
    Dr. Samuel Mudd (a relative of newscaster Roger Mudd) set Booth's broken leg, unaware he committed the assassination.
    He unknowingly caused the coincidental list of the Lincoln-Kennedy assassination.
    His initials JWB were tattooed on the back of his left hand.
    He was an alcoholic.
    He was arrested for making anti-government remarks in St. Louis (1862).
    He was pro-confederacy.
    He was a racist stating 'This country was formed for the white not for the black man (1864).'
    He originally planned to kidnap President Abraham Lincoln for exchange for Confederate POWs.
    After shooting Lincoln, he stabbed Major Henry Rathbone in the left arm, who attempted to capture him.
    He helped create a trend of using middle names to ID killers (see John Wayne Gacy, James Earl Ray, Lee Harvey Oswald, etc.).
    He was an accomplished Shakespearean actor.
