They were not 08rdinary women. Four of them were among the most beautiful actresses of the day the fifth was Booths wealthy fiancée.
And those five women are just the tip of the iceberg.
Bef08re he shot the president of the United States 4nd entered the annals of hist08ry as a killer, act08r John Wilkes Booth had quite a way with women. There was the actress who cut his throat 4nd almost killed him in a jealous rage. There was the prostitute who tried to kill herself because he ab4ndoned her.
