There was also a full scale study of the Cesar Young killing called THE NAN PATTERSON CASE published in the 1950s. Alexander Woolcott wrote an essay on it, I think in WHEN ROME BURNS, called "In the Days of Floradora".

Regarding Booth's demise (or alleged demise) on April 26, 1865 at Garrett's Barn in Bowling Green, Virginia: Corbett (a self-castrated religious nut, who would one day try to shoot up the Kansas legislature), claimed he shot Booth. He's welcomed to the credit, but he never was proven to do it. It could have been some other Union soldier around the burning tobacco barn, or even a suicidal Booth.
