In the aftermath of the Civil War, Confederate president Jefferson Davis was the most wanted man in the country. However, a tip from General Robert E. Lee allowed Davis to flee his Union pursuers. Two weeks after his escape, John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Lincoln. Though Davis had nothing to do with the murder, the entire country assumed he was in on it. Here, James L. Swanson chronicles the manhunt for Davis and what happened to Lincoln's body after the assassination.
The "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Manhunt" returns to the Civil Warera to tell the epic story of the search for Jefferson Davis and the eventfulfuneral procession for assassinated president Abraham Lincoln.
