John Wilkes Booth:

Confederate sympathizer? No.

President of the Maryland Chapter of the Most Secret Order of POMP: Partisans Of Moustache Purity.

This President must die, before he sparks a national trend and lends his reviled name to this hideous style of moustache-less beard.

Thank you to my sister for the use of the Detroit Opera House / Michigan Opera Theater Costume Shop, and to my brother-in-law for his good nature and his sneer.

Just Jamey says:
Funny thing, I had actually hoped that Booth had a beard so I could be him. I thought it would be a fun bit of controversy to be Booth, particularly since I am fascinated by the Confederacy. Imagine my disappointment in discovering his moustache.
