Praise

“With the deft mastery we have come to expect from him, Harold Holzer compiles a vivid, riveting, and at times profoundly moving narrative of the immediate reaction to perhaps the greatest cataclysm in American history, and of the sudden and unexpected need to come to terms with the death of the complicated man at the center of it, Abraham Lincoln.” — Ken Burns, filmmaker

“As it moves between Washington and the American heartland, from the crime itself to all the mourning and retribution it engendered, this gathering of essential documents and eye-popping curiosities recreates Lincoln’s murder with an extraordinary you-are-there vividness. I cannot think of another anthology—on any subject—that has been assembled with such narrative power and urgency.” — Thomas Mallon, author of Henry and Clara

“The national tragedy that brought the Civil War to its appalling climax takes on new life and meaning in this remarkable compilation.” — Stephen W. Sears, author of Landscape Turned Red
