RE: The Legend Of John Wilkes Booth
Guilty of perjury? It sure appears to be there. That version appears to be slightly vetted by a lawyer for him, and dressed for Corbett to recite. The first preliminary line there sounds unlike Corbett, but more as if scripted. Then the addition of "the man watching him told me he aimed the carbine at me" is an obvious fake. How could Boyd/Booth in a lit barn even see outside into the dark...through a crack to aim at Corbett. That line is not repeated in his lecture claims or his statement to Stanton.
And, what do YOU make, Roger, of his usual claims that God directed his bullet, that it followed the identical path and hit Booth behind the left ear? Wasn't Corbett lying, and many times over, and blaspheming God who certainly did no such thing? No bullet hit the man behind the left ear...did it? And what gun was used, pistol or rifle? At the outset 'of the capture of JWBooth', we see glaring contradictions that those Lincoln scholars do not want to address, and give more plausibility to John Wilkes Booth really escaping. Corbett himself appeared, later, to believe that JWBooth was very much alive and 'on his track', as Corbett fled across America.
