Virtually every word of this riveting history is based on primary-source material: new quotes from previously unpublished diaries, letters and journals. Authentic, contemporary voices write with freshness as eyewitnesses or intimate participants creating a new portrayal of these events. Anthony Pitch's account contains new confirmations of threats made against Lincoln's life and a vivid personal account of John Wilkes Booth. Most shocking are the revelations about the conditions in the special prison where civilians accused of assassination attempts were tortured.
