Mystery and speculation have been associated with the assassination of Abraham Lincoln for more than a century. Here is a thorough documentation, based on 30 years of research, of the activities and struggles of the President during his last day, along with events leading up to the assassination. Eyewitness accounts, never-before-published facts, Booth’s activities on April 14, the reaction of the city, physician’s efforts—and many other factors large and small are covered. A four-part appendix explains still unresolved mysteries surrounding this fascinating historical event. Photos are generally the rare and the little-seen, including a few never before published.
