Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
April 15, 1865 was the day that President Abraham Lincoln died. Any child can find out that information and has probably learned it in school. This title in the "We the People" series lets children discover how this tragedy came about by detailing the conspiracy behind the assassination. John Wilkes Booth is the name that sticks in the minds of most people when speaking about Lincoln's assassination but the fact is that many people including David Herold, Lewis Powell, John and Mary Surrat and George Atzerodt were involved in different capacities. It is this focus on the conspirators, their roles and their fates that make this book a great resource. Paintings and photographs enrich the text and bring the characters to life. Also included are a timeline, glossary, important people and want-to-know-more lists and "Did You Know?" This is an excellent resource for any classroom study or library. 2005, Compass Point Books, Ages 7 to 12.
