“Killing Lincoln” is a wonderful book for those who are history buffs, and even for those who aren’t! Beginning with the last few weeks of the Civil War, this book looks at Abraham Lincoln the man, as well as President. It also follows those same weeks in John Wilkes Booth’s life, as this famous theater actor’s resentment and hatred of Lincoln grows and consumes him. I was amazed at the conspiracy behind Lincoln’s assassination by those close to him as well as the President’s firm knowledge that he would be killed in office. O’Reilly’s account was so descriptive, I found myself standing on the battlefield watching the events unfold. A truly insightful and moving account of one of our nation’s greatest tragedies. Very well done.

  3. It sounds very good. I love history books like that; currently reading a history book called The Tin Ticket, and I’ll have to consider this as well.
