April 14th is the anniversary of the Lincoln assassination.  Despite the Civil War having just ended, John Wilkes Booth carried out his plan to kill President Abraham Lincoln at Fords Theater in Washington, D.C.  After the assassination, John Wilkes Booth set out on a twelve day escape route through Southern Maryland and into Virginia. Ultimately, Booth was captured and killed by Federal Troops at Garrett Farm in Virginia. 

Today, many of the sites associated with the life and death of John Wilkes Booth still exist. If you visit any of these sites, you are very likely to be able to still feel the spirit of John Wilkes Booth from long ago.
