President Lincoln Assassinated!!: The Firsthand Story of the Murder, Manhunt, Trial, and Mourning

This is Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer giving a talk at the National Archives based on his new book, President Lincoln Assassinated!!: The Firsthand Story of the Murder, Manhunt, Trial, and Mourning.  I think he does a good job presenting the images and perhaps debunking a very famous quotation from John Wilkes Booth regarding Lincoln’s last public address.

    Very good, Al. Much better than Dr. Abel’s presentation. And yes, Holtzer definitely puts an end to the Booth quote. Thanks for sharing.
