The Madman and the Assassin: The Strange Life of Boston Corbett, the Man Who Killed John Wilkes Booth by Scott Martelle
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book was kind of interesting, it just felt like there wasn't much to the story. As the author states, Corbett was a pretty ordinary man for the times, so there really wasn't much to say about him other than explore his religious eccentricities and his disappearance. The disappearance is the more interesting to me but what can you say about an unknown story? Aside from the assassination tale, there isn't much of a story here, but it was interesting to learn about a person involved in the act that you never hear about.
