Chasing Lincoln's Killer
Chasing Lincoln's Killer by James L Swanson
This is the story of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the attack of Secretary of State Seward and the 12 day manhunt that followed. The book is a nice mix of storytelling with primary source documents and quotes. There are a lot of great pictures in the book. This is a great historical for reluctant readers because it reads more like a thriller than just a standard historical account.
