Mr. Swanson became interested in President Lincoln's assassination as a child and proceeded to learn all he could about it and to collect memorabilia throughout his lifetime.
Although this book is packed full of facts, it reads like a thriller. I learned a lot about John Wilkes Booth and the assassination plot.
-Borrowed from the library.
*Highly recommend for older readers (junior high/high school).
Full of photographs.
