RE: The Legend Of John Wilkes Booth
If your assumptions are valid, where would you suggest a man to begin his search? How about with the 1870 census. Have you ever yet seen even one of the "respected Lincoln scholars" simply do that much? As I pointed out in another thread, they have not yet bothered to try and track down Abraham Lincoln in the 1840 census. Do you really think that history was well served by having those "Lincoln experts" quash a simple DNA test for Booth? And for them to actually crow about it, as if they had done history a great service. I admit it is vastly easier merely to point to an "official government conclusion" from the Victorian era. But the same official government hanged Mary Surratt and never even jailed (Lincoln's security guard) John Parker. If all these scholars and investigators do is look for a way out of pursuing viable leads, then they are not serving the interests of genuine history, not in the least degree.
