Description
One of those remarkable books that you didn't know you needed until it appeared, this A-to-Z reference compiles the many figures, places, events, and peripheral facts associated with the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. This defining moment in American history has generated uncounted volumes of fact, lore, biography, and theory, and here Edward Steers Jr. (the author of Blood on the Moon and a leading authority on the subject) offers a detailed yet highly readable companion for anyone wishing to keep the story straight. Illustrated with 150 period photographs and maps, it includes a narrative timeline of events and explores the truth behind the hoaxes, myths, and legends surrounding Lincoln's assassination.

"The entries are arranged in alphabetical order and range in length from a paragraph (for example, Corey, John) to more than eight pages (Booth escape route).... All the major and minor players are included, from Booth's family members to 'Peanut John' Burroughs, who held Booth's horse when he went into the theater. Steers also addresses all of the conspiracy theories, such as the claim that John Wilkes Booth escaped and lived under the alias David E. George. He also debunks the theory that Secretary of War Edwin Stanton was behind the assassination and presents evidence pointing to Dr. Samuel Mudd's connection with Booth. Each entry ends with the source of information and in many cases see references to related entries. This in-depth encyclopedia will be a valuable addition to all library collections where information on Lincoln and the Civil War is in demand."Booklist
