Can You Imagine....

Booth gets on the internet and says he'd like to inflict mortal damage with that derringer, heck it's hard not to take a beating mentioning a .380 for defense. He would have been roasted for even suggesting this was what he wanted to use.

Booth's gun is displayed at Ford's Theatre. The bullet is at the Army Hospital Museum in Washington, D. C.

Presidential family history can be fascinating. The best source is Burke's Presidential Families. My wife is in the book and that's probably the only reason I've ever heard of it. Did you know one pre-Civil War president still has a living grandson.
