This is a must read. Also Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln is a must read. I am a history buff and home is Tenn. I do not believe J.W.B. was brought out of the burned barn. A "body" was but was burned beyond recognition. I think JWB lived out his days in Cuba. A man died in 1903 claiming to be JWB. Had Lincoln not been killed my South would not have gone thru the reconstruction and carpetbaggers it did. A hugh loss.

Did John Wilkes Booth act alone? Who was really behind Lincoln
Did John Wilkes Booth act alone? Who was really behind Lincoln’s assassination? What about Mary Lincoln’s supposed “madness”? These questions and more are what set Temple McFadden and friends on what may well be a life-ending quest for some of them.
The Lincoln Conspiracy is a very well-researched book that throws up a few theories to make us think in a year when there seems to be a much-renewed interest in Abraham Lincoln and his life. In this novel he doesn’t really appear as this is after the assassination. Temple, a police detective, acquires two small books: One is Mary Lincoln’s diary and one is mostly in code. Mrs. Lincoln’s diary is interesting and reveals more about her husband than was previously known. The other book? Well, that’s the one that is causing Temple all his problems.
Temple’s friends and his wife decide to act. Fiona is to return the personal diary to Mrs. Lincoln. Temple, his friend Augustus (a freed slave) and more work to decipher the code using a system called the Vigenere table. What they find is most troubling.
This book would make an excellent gift for the Lincoln fan. It shows a lot about post-Lincoln Washington and it’s surrounding area. It also shows the character of the people living there, which is more important. If you’re a history buff at all, you’ve got to read this.
