With Malice Toward One based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
John Wilkes Booth may have pulled the trigger, but his co-conspirators including a woman, were equally guilty in the plot to assassinate President Lincoln. Their original plan was to kidnap the president to initiate a prisoner exchange, but it quickly evolved into an assassination plot. This book which was written for children in an easy-to-read format with text on one side and illustrations on the other, make it easy to absorb this lesser-known part of Civil War history. Adults will also find the book of interest exploring the motives of the individuals behind the dastardly crime. The book provides the reader with an insightful look at the politics and history of the time. I would highly recommend it for a classroom or for anyone interested in Civil War history.
