Boston Corbett Monument


category : Monuments
Boston Corbett, as a Union Army soldier, shot John Wilkes Booth, who had assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. Rather than being hailed as a hero, he was arrested for disobeying orders to take Booth alive. He was thrown into the gaurd house, the start of a humiliation that lasted throughout his life.

Boston Corbett's dugout is located southeast of Concordia. To visit the site, choose a dry day. Drive south on US 81 to the Cloud County Landfill Road, go two miles east, three miles south and one-half mile east. The monument is on the south side of the road in a pasture. The Cloud County Historical Museum has a great deal of information about Boston Corbett.
