After John Wilkes Booth was killed for the murder of Abraham Lincoln, he was buried in an unmarked grave on his family plot. His brother Edwin thought a flashy headstone might attract vandals, so people believe this small, plain grave- stone is his final resting place. Today, visitors still put pennies on it, face up, as if to give Lincoln the final say. Source Source 2
