The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin, John Wilkes Booth, led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild twelve-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness.

James L. Swanson's Manhunt is a fascinating tale of murder, intrigue, and betrayal. A gripping hour-by-hour account told through the eyes of the hunted and the hunters, this is history as you've never read it before.

  • Manhunt

    This is an excellent book. I usually read fiction. However, this book was highly recommended to me. It reads like a novel. Lincoln's assassination happened a few days after the Civil War ended. I am learning quite a bit about the reaction of citizens, both helpful to John Booth as well as Lincoln's supporters who were determined to capture and punish Booth as well as his accomplices. This book was chosen for our book club. I am looking forward to the book club discussion. If a person want to read something out of their usual genre--this is the book to read.
