Great book!

We read this in class and it was great! Good description, and i could fit right into the assassins shoes. But 2 things, 1) this is for classroom use. This version has been simplified for school use. Swanson has other books on the topic and I recommend them. I just don't like that it randomly switches perspectives. I sometimes got lost due to this. "Wait. Why is booth in Stewards house?" But thats my only complaint.

Amazing book!

This book is very interesting and you learn a lot. There are so many characters you get better at using context clues and piecing things together to remember who everyone is. Since many characters aren’t mentioned for many pages and then mentioned again. I highly recommend this book and you learn a lot of valuable information and it tells the story of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. It in-depth describes the experience of murdering him and the entire story. It goes in-depth of some things that you can see when visiting the memorial and what it is like today! Highly recommend it! Great book!
