Stand your ground, men!
For slavery!!! And the South!!!!
A shootout began as the flames surrounded Booth. In the end, Sergeant Boston Corbett said that he shot John Wilkes Booth to protect his comrades.
Booth was paralyzed from the wound to his neck, so the soldiers carried him to the front porch. Booth eventually died on the Garrets’ farm, uttering his last words as he stared at his hands, “Useless, useless.”
On July 6th, 1865, Mary Surratt, David Herold, Lewis Powell, and George Atzerodt were executed, and the other conspirators received prison sentences. The chase was finally over, and President Lincoln's spirit was finally put to rest.
