Legend's lyrics are mainly meditations on romance whether it's playful ("Alright," the sly, l'et's-keep-it-on-the-down-low' "She Don't Have to Know") or complicated and serious ("Ordinary Love," "Number One").

 The Legend of John Wilkes Booth
He traces the legend’s development in the weeks following the assassination to the appearance of the “Booth Mummy,” the remains of an Oklahoma drifter embalmed in 1903 and displayed in carnival sideshows throughout the West.
Weaving a “vernacular intellectual history,” Evans shows how the legend emerged from a tangle of cultural and historical events including white Americans’ quest for a suitable racial pre-history, collective memories of the Civil War, and even incipient suspicions of conspiracy, since belief in Booth’s escape automatically implied a government cover-up of Booth’s capture and death.
The Legend of John Wilkes Booth is a compelling story of how collective memories and popular histories collide with, clash, and sometimes overcome mainstream accounts of the past.
