One of the Boots worn by Wilkes Booth at the Assassination of President Lincoln, 1865 
1865 (ca) 
  
Cabinet card 
Private collection of Graham Pilecki 
 
LL/35130 
  
Although this cabinet card has a wet stamp on the reverse claiming that it is:
One of the Boots worn by Wilkes Booth,
at the Assassination of President
Lincoln, 1865
This has to be questioned as the boots work by Wilkes Booth with knee length. There is a boot worn by John Wilkes Booth. It was cut by Dr. Samuel Mudd who tended to Booth's wounds. (Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs)
