Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever by Bill O'Reilly, Martin Dugard

5 of 5 stars  *****

I savor this account of Lincoln's last days here on Earth. The short, well-written, information-packed chapters allow me to read it as I do the Bible, daily, for a brief time, so I may absorb the content slowly. I read books and listen to Audiobooks during the same period so Killing Lincoln's format makes this convenient. 

Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard craft a work of art with their honest, in-depth research. History should display the truth as much as humanly possible and Killing Lincoln presents this noble attempt at doing just that for this most memorable slice of time.
