What Were the Last Words John Wilkes Booth Had for His Mother?

When John Wilkes Booth said to tell his mother, “I did it for my country,” what “country” did he mean?

If America’s civil war was already over, when Booth killed President Lincoln, how could Booth mean the Confederate States of America (as his country)?

Was Booth trying to destabilize the United States, so the Confederacy could rise from the chaos he’d created?

Why do you think Booth kept a diary about the events of Lincoln’s assassination?
