Incredibly well researched history of the Booth family and the rivalry between brothers that led to the shooting of President Lincoln in the Ford Theater. If you are a civil war fan, this is a must read. I also emerged from the reading better versed in the history of theater in America and the history of how actors are viewed in society. What was missing was a better understanding of the psychological -- there is little information about the type of "madness" that ran in the family. I would love to have had an addendum by Kay Redfield Jamieson.
An amazing first book by an author to watch.
The REAL background to the Lincoln assassination. AND the story of John Wilkes Booth they never told us in school.
