The Lincoln Assassination at Ford's Theatre

SKU: 9781935442486

$16.99 $15.29 Member Price

On April 14, 1865, Abraham Lincoln was mortally shot by John Wilkes Booth while attending a play at Ford’s Theatre. Suddenly, the war-weary country, which was still celebrating the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee to Union General Ulysses S. Grant just five days earlier, was plunged into a period of national mourning.

This compelling book highlights the events of the assassination – from Booth’s murderous plot and the details of the night, to the hangings of the co-conspirators and Lincoln’s continuing legacy. With dozens of rare artifacts, scholar essays and quotes, biographies and captivating archival images, the book spotlights the events of that fateful night and honors the 16th president’s life and legacy.
