Historic Port Royal hosts talk on John Wilkes Booth
Historic Port Royal member David Taylor will be the group’s guest speaker 7 p.m. April 22.
Booth sought refuge in Port Royal after he shot President Abraham Lincoln. He was killed two miles outside the town, west of the intersection of present day Routes 301 and 17.
The Garrett family farm is where Booth hid and then died.
Taylor’s talk will be during the meeting, which will take place at Town Hall, at 419 King St.
