Description

Just as many men claimed they were present at the Battle of Gettysburg when they were not, some members of the 16th New York Cavalry claimed to have participated in the capture of John Wilkes Booth. William Collins of Albion, a veteran of the 16th New York Cavalry, claimed that he was present when Boston Corbett shot Booth at the Garrett Farm despite a lack of evidence to support his participation.
