This past summer I visited the historic home, Tudor Hall. John Wilkes Booth, the infamous Lincoln assassin, lived in the house for some time.
Tudor Hall is a historic home located at Bel Air, Harford County, Maryland, United States. It is a 1 1⁄2-story Gothic Revival cottage built of painted brick. The house was built as a country retreat by Junius Brutus Booth (1796–1852)... However, Booth never lived in Tudor Hall, because he died before it was completed. Neither did his son Edwin Booth, who left to pursue his acting career. But his other son, John Wilkes Booth, grew up in that house with his mother, brother, and two sisters.I find it interesting that his favourite role was Brutus, "the slayer of the tyrant". He shouted "Sic semper tyrannis" ("Thus always to tyrants") as he jumped to the stage after he had shot the president.
