|Booth has been vilified by history, justifiably so. But to the moment of assassination he was a man, felt himself sincere and courageous like so many others, battling the cavalcade of emotions brought on by war's end. Shakespearean hero, indeed -- until he pulled the trigger. Only then could darkness slowly consume his heart (as it did Macbeth's). By the Garrett Farm even he understood the damnable tragedy he had perpetrated.
Lessons might still be drawn in the winds atop old Maryland pine. Thanks for making me feel welcome, Hellcat. I like it here, it's quiet, and quite cool.
