On April 14, 1865, while attending a play at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C., President Abraham Lincoln was shot and fatally wounded by a popular young actor, John Wilkes Booth. Booth murdered a president who, against almost impossible odds, had led the nation through a devastating war against itself, a war that, at a cost of more than half a million lives, had preserved the principles of democratic self-government and ended slavery in America. Was John Wilkes Booth a madman? Did he kill Lincoln for revenge? Was he an agent of a massive conspiracy? Black Easter explores the myths and mysteries of the assassination, answers these and many other questions and leads to a new appreciation of Lincoln the president and Lincoln the man.
