Summary
John Wilkes Booth, driven son of an acclaimed British stage actor and a Covent Garden flower girl, whose misguided quest to avenge the vanquished Confederacy led him to commit one of the most notorious acts in the annals of America, has been the subject of scholarship, speculation, and even obsession. Though in his plot to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln, Booth did not act alone, "I am determined to be a villain," he tragically prophesied on the occasion of his acclaimed 1862 New York City debut in the role of Richard III, he is often portrayed as a shadowy figure, devoid of human connection. Yet four women were integral in the life of this unquiet American: Mary Ann, the mother he revered above all but country; his sister and confidante, Asia; Lucy Lambert Hale, the senator's daughter who loved him; and the Confederate widow Mary Surratt, to whom he entrusted the secrets of his vengeful wrath
