John Wilkes Booth’s Brother Saved Lincoln’s Son.

by Daniel Russ on October 5, 2019

Robert Todd Lincoln, the son of President Abraham Lincoln didn’t have to mess with warfare. He was protected because of his father’s occupation. One day, climbing aboard a New Jersey train, the crowd expanded and forced him over the rail where he hung precariously between the train and the platform.

A man on the train pulled him to safety. The man was Edwin Booth, the brother of John Wilkes Booth who would later kill Todd’s father.
