Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer

 Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer
 by James L. Swanson

 ISBN: 9780060518509

I’m not really a history or civil war buff, but this book is compelling. Swanson weaves together the narratives of the fleeing assassin, the man hunters, the grieving capitol and the media coverage to give you an awesome perspective on how the chase for the killers shaped our country almost as much as the assassination itself.
