John Wilkes Booth 150th

On April 26, 1865, John Wilkes Booth the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln died at the Garret Farm outside of the town of Port Royal, Caroline County, VA.  In April 2015, Port Royal and Caroline County are commemorating the death of Booth and the capture of his co-conspirator David Herold and as part of the event I will be signing copies of "I Would Still Be Drowned in Tears": Spiritualism in Abraham Lincoln's White House at the Port Royal Museum of American History on April 25, 2015.
