The Rest of the Story

Monday, September 22nd at 7 pm


What is the most handsome man in America doing with Brookville’s most renowned female citizen?


You are invited to find out as the account of John Wilkes Booth and Kate M. Scott is dramatized at the Mengle Memorial Library in Brockway.  This program is sponsored by the Mengle Memorial Library, the Brockway Historical Society, the Brockway Depot and presented by the Jefferson County Historical Society.


This extraordinary tale is written by historians Ray Neff and Leonard Guttridge who claim that Kate Scott had a daughter to John Wilkes Booth in December 1865.  This is further substantiated by Randy Bartlett in Remembering Jefferson County as he illuminates the story through Scott’s own words. These revelations in the play are better than O’Reilly’s Killing Lincoln because it connects us in rural Pennsylvania to the big picture. It uncovers new evidence about the aftermath of the assassination.
