The Strangest Avenger

No, not Doctor Strange, nor even Cocktor Strange, but Lincoln’s Avenger: Boston Corbett.

Boston Corbett was the Union soldier who was tasked to apprehend John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln. He was also a mad hatter (hatters back then often went crazy due to prolonged exposure to mercury) and killed Booth instead on God’s orders.

His given name was Thomas, but he called himself Boston when he wasn’t referring to himself in third person as “The Patriot.” He was a crack shot with a six shooter. He also wore his hair long like Jesus, castrated himself with a pair of scissors to avoid temptation from prostitutes, and lived in a literal hole in the ground here, outside Concordia, Kansas.

I took these on the way to a triathlon and didn’t drive my usual vehicle (had to fit my bike in) and didn’t have my usual accessories, but enough for some kind of alternate reality Lincoln Avenger, decidedly minus the castration part, if you look closely, my gun is still cocked and loaded and I’m open to some temptation from the ladies πŸ˜‰

    Such a strange character! I saw the story of this guy on one of the site seeing apps, and could imagine him out in the tall prairie grass, or emerging from his hole in the ground, but the castration by scissors was the mental image that stuck.

    Great pictures! How strange you’d look if you weren’t locked and loaded and ready for temptation!!! Ah, but my eyes are enjoying that you are!

    So love that you didn’t castrate yourself. πŸ†πŸ†πŸ† That would be a shame and a waste indeed. Excellent history lesson/kinky blog post! πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ––
