Overview

A rich collection of newspaper articles, editorial, and opinions published in the days before and weeks following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The foreword is by U.S. Representative Joe Courtney. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs from the period and a comprehensive index. The reporting is emotional, graphic, detailed and sometimes even poetic. To read these contemporary accounts is to share the experience that Americans had at this most traumatic moment in the nation's history.
