Bloody Crimes

Excellent account of the events surrounding the end of the Civil War. The book makes one want to visit all the places where these occurred.

Fascinating Book

Just finished it this morning. GREAT BOOK!!!!! A MUST READ for anyone who loves America and Her history. Gripping. I could actually "See" the whole "Pageant of Lincoln's Corpse" as it move from state to state; I could "feel" the Jefferson Davis' chase , capture and return to the South to live out the rest of his life. "With malice toward none, with charity for all".....

bloody crimes

Excellent book! Enjoyed it from 1st page all the way through to the finish. Detailed accounts about parallel lives on opposite sides of the Union kept my interest the whole way! An 11 on a scale of 1 to 10
