While some of the public has been fascinated by theories and speculations, Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guide Michael Kanazawich has focused his energies and studies on finding and communicating some of the more obscure vignettes and remarkable true stories from the assassination of the 16th President. You won't find long accounts of Edwin Stanton's alleged betrayal of his commander-in-chief, or of Jeff Davis's secret plot to take care of his rival and counterpart. Instead, this new book offers a diverse collection of short accounts and stories that are perfect for light reading.
Published by Colecraft Industries, a botique publisher based in Ortanna, PA not far from the Gettysburg Battlefield, Remarkable Stories of the Lincoln Assassination continues Colecraft's recent successful series of books with snippets of interesting information arranged in chronological order covering historical events (Gettysburg, Antietam, and now the Booth / Lincoln story).
The author has assembled an interesting array of stories, which are well written and understandable. Some of well known to the general public, but some would only be known to the hard-core Lincoln historian and enthusiast.Read more ›
A previous reviewer found little new in this book. I disagree. Perhaps that reviewer missed the point of the book--to provide some new human interest stories connected to the Lincoln Assassination. On that basis I think this book completely succeeds in what it purports to be--a collection of human interest stories.
There are a number of new stories in this short but solid work. In particular the story of the young witness standing at the scaffold at the plotters' executions I found to be a consummate human reaction to such an event.
Mike Kanazawich should be commended for his research and scholarship. I would recommend this book highly to anyone interested in one of th most tragic events in American history.
