You won't see a marker for the grave of Lincoln's assassin if you walk by the cemetery plot of the Booth family in Baltimore . But he's definitely buried there. Just ask the jokesters who put Lincoln-head pennies into the "O's" in the "BOOTH" on the family's memorial monument.
There are plenty of other Booths buried there too, including a sister, who was his eternal ally; a mother, to whom he was devoted; and his father, an even more famous actor.
"American Brutus: John Wilkes Booth and the Lincoln Conspiracies," a convincing 2004 book by Michael W. Kauffman , uncovers the swirling emotions that turned a young actor from a "captivating person," "lover of nature" and "gentle poet" into a killer. The book provides insight into Booth's role in one of the most remarkable families in American history.
