Fun Fact: What John Wilkes Booth’s Brother Did To Robert Todd Lincoln

Fun facts about Edwin Booth

In late 1864 or early 1865, actor Edwin Booth saved a young man who had fell off a train platform. While the young man knew Edwin due to being a notable actor, Edwin Booth did not know the name of the person he saved. Months later, he found out that the young man was the President’s son Robert Todd Lincoln. Which brought Edwin Booth some comfort, as he was ashamed that his brother John Wilkes Booth had assassinated President Lincoln shortly before he learned the news.
