    1. Published in 1929 and basically provided the facts as known at the time. Some additional facts since then have under girded this book. Though reference was made to possible Confederate government involvement. I did not and still do not believe the Confederate government was involved though some members of the government may have aided and abetted it. Jefferson Davis for sure - in my view - did not endorse any such act. Just not his style - though he was a traitor to our country in my view.

    2. I think this book is really good. It explains the events very well and its very interesting and this book makes me want to read it again. I really like Abraham Lincoln and how he stopped slavery and his history on how he died. I think John Wilkes Booth died in the barn.
