Comments : On April 15, 1865, Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. At the same time, the Walnut Street Theater was owned by Shakespearean actor Edwin Booth, the brother of Lincoln-assassin John Wilkes Booth. See Lynn Millers article in todays Philadelphia Inquirer, at p. A14. Edwin had sided with the North, and people did not hold his brothers terrible crime against him.
