Tourists often leave a penny at the grave of which man?

Answer:

JOHN WILKES BOOTH

One of the top actors of his day, John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln on April 14, 1865 before being killed himself. Four years later, President Andrew Johnson returned Booth’s body to his family. Today, John Wilkes Booth is buried in an unmarked grave in the Booth family plot at Green Mount Cemetery in Baltimore, Maryland. However, that has not stopped people from determining its location — and leaving a little something behind. In lieu of flowers or stones, people leave pennies behind on the headstone as revenge for Abraham Lincoln, whose face is on the penny.
