    Edward Steers(Author)
The assassination of Abraham Lincoln is one of the most familiar stories in American history, usually told as a tale of a lone deranged actor who struck from a twisted lust for revenge. Edward Steers reveals that this is not only too simple an explanation: it is completely wrong.

If you are going to read only one book on the Lincoln assassination, this is the one! - James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize winner for Battle Cry of Freedom ""Immediately takes its place as the standard by which all other books dealing with Lincoln's assassination will be judged: it is must reading for anyone interested in the Civil War or American history."" - Joseph E. Garrera, President, Lincoln Group of New York ""Steers has a sharp ear for historical discordance and a novelist's eye for illuminating detail.... Provocative reading."" - Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review Text

  • By TheHighlander on 6 December 2002

    This book is the story of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Not the assassination that they teach in the history books but a much more in depth view of the conspirators that were involved. Most people don't know that the Federal Government actually arrested ten people for the conspiracy and assassination and hung four along with killing John Wilkes Booth during the man hunt. The conspirators were tried by a military tribunal and not in civilian courts.This book goes very in depth at the contacts and relationships that these conspirators had. The countryside is discussed as well as events leading up to and after the shooting. It talks of previous plots of the Confederacy to kidnap Lincoln and of the Federals to kidnap Jefferson Davis. The book did, at times, read a little like a history book. So much detail that it seemed to drag in spots but only for short periods before it revived itself.This is a very good book that students of history will love. That Civil War buffs will enjoy also. It is more of a book for high schoolers and up as at times it is tedious because it has so much information to process. Overall, I enjoyed it greatly. But then again, I love history. Check it out, see what you think.

    If you look at the reviews on Amazon for this book you will find high praise indeed for the author and this book. (I highly recommend you to read any Amazon reviews for any book you'd like to buy, as they tend to offer real insight and opposing opinions)I found it compelling. It was well written, well researched, contained new information on the asassination (new to me anyway). It was very thorough and written in a way that wasn't dry history.As the saying goes if you only read one book on the Lincoln assassination, it should be" Blood on the Moon "
