"As a history major, I wish my required reading had been as well written as this truly vivid and emotionally engaging account of Lincoln's assassination. And as a former combat infantry officer, I found myself running for cover at the Civil War battle scenes. This is the story of an American tragedy that changed the course of history.  If you think you know this story, you don't until you’ve read Killing Lincoln.  Add historian to Bill O’Reilly’s already impressive résumé."—Nelson DeMille, author of The Lion and The Gold Coast

"Killing Lincoln is a must read historical thriller.  Bill O'Reilly recounts the dramatic events of the spring of 1865 with such exhilarating immediacy that you will feel like you are walking the streets of Washington, DC, on the night that John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln.  This is a hugely entertaining, heart-stopping read."—Vince Flynn, author of American Assassin

"If Grisham wrote a novel about April 1865…it might well read like Killing Lincoln."—Peter J. Boyer, Newsweek

It describes the events in such detail and suspense that even though you know that Lee will be cornered at Appomattox, you keep thinking that maybe he will escape back into the South.      I could barely believe …

I've read a lot about Abraham Lincoln and his times, and I thought that I knew as much as it was possible to know about the last few days of his life. This well-written new book has shown me that there are many things about Lincoln of which I was unaware, which seems to happen to me all the time with historical subjects. The story of the life of a historical figure is always subject to new information, the collation of information from disparate sources into one coherent whole, and just plain …
