I've always wondered if Booth didn't believe himself a bit of a coward, after all he had ample opportunity to enlist in the CS military and never chose to. With the ultimate testement of his courage being the assassination of the President... though his method would forever brand him a coward.

As an actor perhaps he believed himself above the germane roll of an anonymous soldier in the ranks. Some have said he was under the employ of the CS but I have always doubted this. I've never thought much of the man and nothing I have read to date has changed my opinion of him.
