Along a rural Kansas Road you will find a small monument which has been erected as a marker near the location of a Dugout once owned by Boston Corbett.
Boston Corbett was a Army Sergeant who was with a detachment of soldiers searching for John Wilkes Booth. When they caught up with Booth, Corbett was credited and later discharged from the Army for the shot that killed Booth. It seems that Corbett made a spectacular shot through a crack in some barn siding, however Corbett was discharged for failing to follow orders in the shooting.
After being discharged Corbett homesteaded in Kansas and made this dugout his home for awhile. The eccentric man had a run in with the local sheriff (after showing some local children the business end of his pistol) and through some sypathetic friends he landed a job at the state capital.
After an incident where he displayed his 38 at the capital he was sent to the state insane asylum, which he quickly escaped from. He made his way to friends house and was last seen jumping a train. There is no record of what happened to him after that.
