    With so many books dealing with our 16th President...

    It's hard for beginners to pinpoint a book (or books) to begin their study. I can't think of anyone in American History that has more books written about them (save Washington and that is a maybe). There are books on every aspect of Lincoln's life, from his years on the prairie to his rise and assassination. Where does one begin? Well I can say that I think anyone interested in the assassination of Lincoln need look no further.

    I've read many books on the Lincoln assassination and found this book to be my favorite. Pitch had to know that he was entering a market already over saturated with books on Booth, Lincoln, the escape and aftermath so he really had to make this book stand out. And stand out it does. This book is the most comprehensive look at the assassination and the people involved that I've ever found. It's the little details that really separate this book from dry history and make it come to life. Full of newly unearthed material that Pitch spent 9 years mining, it will stand as the benchmark for future works on the subject.

    There are three really good books on the subject of the assassination. 1st is Blood On the Moon, 2nd is American Brutus, and this book. All three will give you all you need to know about what happened that fateful day in 1865. If you want one to start with, start with this one.

    I just ordered Pitch's book on the burning of Washington by the British from my local Barns & Nobel and I can't wait to see what he's come up with about that day. Not only does he do Lincoln justice, he gives a great history of DC during the Civil War and beyond.

    Eye-opening book

    If you think you know all there is to know about the Linciln assassination, read.this book anyway--it will prove you wrong. The author's 9 years of research are evident in the painstaking account of events before, during and after the crime. Contemporary accounts give the sense of what it was like to be in Washington D.C. in 1865. This is an excellent book!

    An insightful look at a

    This book gives you great insight into the tragic assassination of President Lincoln and it's aftermath. The plots, assassination, the escape and chase and finally the trial and executions. It was a book I couldn't put down.
