This is a short informative read on the 18 hours after Lincoln was shot...  I had no idea that Lincoln was conscious for a few hours aftewards,  nor did this doctor actually did chest compression for early CPR. A good read, worth the $1.00

Interesting read. It is clinical but has a very human touch. Get the details of the tragic event that took the life of this great president.

A short but very interesting report from the doctor who attended Lincoln after he had been shot. The report is detailed and provides an interesting insight into Lincoln's last hours.

My husband has enjoyed this book. He loves different perspectives on the same history.

I liked this book because it came from supposedly the doctor who was there. It showed a different side rather than the biographers side to what happened. From someone who was actually there.
