Summary
"President Lincoln Assassinated!! recaptures the dramatic and terrifying immediacy of Lincoln's murder and the coordinated attack on Secretary of State William H. Seward, the hunt for the conspirators, their military trial, and the unprecedented national mourning for our first martyred president. The story is told through more than eighty original documents ... [and] by more than seventy-five participants and observers, including the assassin John Wilkes Booth, Everton Conger, the detective who tracked him down, and Boston Corbett, the soldier who shot him."
