Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
At 7:22 a.m., April 15, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln succumbed to the effects of a bullet fired into his brain by John Wilkes Booth. The following July 7, Mary Surratt became one of four Americans hung for the capitol offense of conspiring to assassinate President Lincoln. From that July day onwards, controversy has swirled about Mrs. Surratt's trial, conviction and execution. Was Mary Surratt an active plotter in Abraham Lincoln's demise or merely an innocent landlady? Did this Maryland native knowingly conspire to commit one of the most heinous acts in American history or was she simply in the wrong place at the wrong time? Were her declarations of her own innocence up to the moment of death rationalizations or the truth? These and other questions are presented and addressed in this volume of the "Headline Court Cases" series. As is the case with other books in this clearheaded legal series, the Surratt trial is well handled. Ample background is provided regarding the Lincoln assassination as well as earlier plots and attempts on the President's life. Mary Surratt's life experiences and political beliefs are outlined in a capable manner. The military trial that resulted in Mary Surratt's conviction is carefully reconstructed and analyzed. Ultimately, Mary Surratt died for the crime of treason. Whether or not that was a just result is uncertain. However, this well-developed, ably researched and cleverly illustrated book does an excellent job of detailing this historic legal case. 2001, Enslow, $20.95. Ages 12 up. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
