tracked down Jett and interrogated him, learning of Booth's location at the
Garrett farm. Before dawn on April 26,
the soldiers caught up with the fugitives, who were hiding in Garrett's tobacco
barn. David Herold surrendered, but
Booth refused Conger's demand to surrender, saying "I prefer to come out
and fight"; the soldiers then set the barn on fire. As Booth moved about inside the blazing barn,
Sergeant Boston Corbett shot him. According to Corbett's later account, he fired
at Booth because the fugitive "raised his pistol to shoot" at them. Conger's report to Stanton, however, stated
that Corbett shot Booth "without order, pretext or excuse", and
recommended that Corbett be punished for disobeying orders to take Booth
alive. Booth, fatally wounded in the neck, was
dragged from the barn to the porch of Garrett's farmhouse, where he died three
hours later, aged 26. The bullet had
pierced three vertebrae and partially severed his spinal cord, paralyzing him. In his dying moments, he reportedly whispered,
"Tell my mother I died for my country". Asking
that his hands be raised to his face so he could see them, Booth uttered his
last words, "Useless, useless," and died as dawn was breaking. In Booth's pockets were found a compass, a
candle, pictures of five women (actresses Alice Grey, Helen Western, Effie
Germon, Fannie Brown, and Booth's fiancée Lucy Hale), and his diary, where he
had written of Lincoln's death, "Our country owed all her troubles to him,
and God simply made me the instrument of his punishment."
