Sgt. Boston Corbett, U.S.A.

Boston Corbett, the man who killed John Wilkes Booth.

Fact #1: His birth name was Thomas Corbett, but he took the name Boston in honor of the town in which he found religion.

Fact #2: To purge himself of the sin and temptation of visiting prostitutes, he castrated himself with a pair of scissors. Afterward, He had a meal and attended a prayer meeting before seeking medical help.
