John Wilkes Booth... I keep hearing that he was not shot and killed in 1865. There is a simple way to know.

A section of John Wilkes Booth's vertebrae.

This statement has been made time and time again. That it was not John Wilkes Booth who was shot and captured at Garrett's Barn on April 26, 1865. At his autopsy a section of his vertebrae was removed and is preserved to this day. All one has to do it check for DNA. Bones are the best places to hold DNA. Just compare it to the later members of his family and the case will be forever closed. That is ...if the DNA matches.
