In Lincoln's Final Hours, author Kathryn Canavan takes a magnifying glass to the last moments of the president's life and to the impact his assassination had on a country still reeling from a bloody civil war. With vivid, thoroughly researched prose and a reporter's eye for detail, this fast-paced account not only furnishes a glimpse into John Wilkes Booth's personal and political motivations, but also illuminates the stories of ordinary people whose lives were changed forever by the assassination.
The book is published by University Press of Kentucky.

Tintillating Tidbits from Tragedy
This book, beautifully written and performed, provides an amazing amount of historical information on the final days of Lincoln and those immediately surrounding him. The information is provided in utterly readable storybook fashion. I was particularly interested in the depiction of Mary Lincoln's grief compared to other purported historical accounts. As well, the incredible self-deception of Booth and his eventual capture was quite interesting.
