RE: Wilkes Booth Came To Washington
Norman Gasbarro states, "Years later, when not under oath, Withers would embellish the story of that night adding that he did see Spangler and it was his [Withers’] quick action that prevented Spangler from dimming the theatre lights. He added the story of the knife wounds that he claimed bothered him when the weather changed. And, he concocted a conversation he supposedly had with Booth while having a drink with him earlier in the day."
