A good movie,but not an accurate one

My history teacher ran this movie for me once several years ago and I barely remember it today,but it left me believing that there was a conspiracy to kill Lincoln and that Booth escaped.Since then,I've believed both rumors and have been trying to find a copy of the movie.However,the movie is wrong on one count,Booth was shot at Garrett's Farm.I learned through careful historical research that Booth was identified by a pin that connected through both his outer vestments and his undershirt.The doctors had to cut through both to remove his clothing,and his family and friends later confirmed that Wilkes always kept the pin this way.The man I believed who confessed to be Booth [brilliantly re-enacted on Unsolved Mysteries] had to have been Boston Corbett,the missing assailant who had shot Booth.I do know that Corbett became emotionally unstable after the war and traveled to both places that John St. Helen [the bogus Booth} had apparently lived in at one time.This theory also puts into light the disappearance of Corbett from the annals of history.Besides,the alledged flight of Booth and the movie's James William Boyd contradicts the known historical data. Despite the facts,the movie is a worth-see and a worthy J.F.K. mystery for the Nineteenth Century.
