Is the news story that Ford's Theater refuses to sell "Killing Lincoln" book a whole lot of mis-information?

There are two bookstores at the Ford Theater. One is selling it and one isn't.

Alan Craig:

How do you explain this book repeating the debunked accusation that Secretary Stanton was part of the plot to kill Abraham Lincoln?

Why would any author be so reckless with the truth?

Funny how Bull O'Really? didn't mention that on his show.

He did go after Sen. Al Franken. Again. Bull is rather thin-skinned, isn't he?

F. Hollister, Debunked by who? Could you back up your statement with a little bit more information please? Also I believe Mr. O'Reilly did mention the Ford's Theater issue in his "Reality Check" segment.

I have not read this book and have no plans to do so. BUT .. on one point about Lee and Grant never meeting again, in addition to the Appomatox meetings already mentioned, General Lee visited President Grant at the White House on May 1, 1869. [See D. S. Freeman. vol. IV, page 520.]

It is also for sale online on the Ford's Theater website:

Not true! It is available in both locations.

Obviously there are people here with political agendas who really dislike O'Reilly. As for Al Franken, he should have written a book called :The Dead shall Rise Again" because of the number of dead that voted for him.....

a lot of nit picking going on about some details. Has anyone EVER written a book without mistakes? Oh, I see.....

You are quite the crybaby! Mr. Franken won fair and square. His failed opponent did his level best to overturn the will of the people - and lost. Again.

Name a right wing gasbag with the guts to run for public office. Boss BlunderRush, Off-the-Mark Levin, Sheer InSannity don't have the courage. They wouldn't make it through the first debate - or press conference.

Alan Craig:

May I suggest you do a bit of research on your own? The literature on the death of Mr. Lincoln is vast.

In the case of some of it, such as that produced by Bull O'Really?, it's more half-vast.

And he failed to mention the giftstore that isn't selling his book.

F. Hollister For the last time this year the Ford's Theater story is now known to be false and bogus, and you have no business repeating such lies.

Alan Craig:

I notice you skip over the important facts to focus on the almost meaningless.

However, just for the record, there appear to be two bookstores. Bull O'Really? - no surprise - failed to mention this. And you failed to perform any research on your own.

This article explains it:

http://www.newshounds.us/2011/11/15/bill_oreillys_misleading_defense_of_the_accuracy_of_his_lincoln_book.php

So does this one:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/political-bookworm/post/oreilly-book-banned-from-fords-theatre/2011/11/12/gIQAEzvOGN_blog.html

Nope - Bull's book isn't for sale here:

http://generalstore.eparks.com/store/category/22/226/Civil-War/

Or, here:

http://generalstore.eparks.com/store/home/3051/Ford%27s-Theatre-National-Historic-Site/

Now may we return to something more important - the serious historical errors in this screed? Poorly written screed, at that...

F. Hollister, Four errors is serious? Bill O'Reilly, not Bull as you insist on insulting and disrespecting him with made mention of them and announced on his show that they had already been corrected. So much for your 'serious errors". I now make the same challenge to you I made to Triliberty on a different forum. If you feel you can write a better, error free book then do so.

Alan Craig:

Who said there were only four errors?

There were more - the most serious being the false accusations against Secretary Stanton and the misinformation about the treatment of Mary Surrat.

Why do you refuse to admit the obvious? You're wrong. Man-up.

Every time you are caught telling a lie you duck and spin and deflect.

It's impossible to respect that, Mr. Craig. Additionally, it isn't my book that's being discussed here - it is Bull's.

Alan Craig:

When it's pointed out that you are incorrect, you change the subject and bring up something new in a poor attempt to deflect and distract.

Now you fail to respond at all - yet you're posting about this book elsewhere on Amazon.

Sad, really. Gutless, of course. And pathetic.

Much like Bull O'Really? himself. A windbag. Full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing.

Zascha Marie:

Returning like a dog to her vomit?

Being able to learn where a book is sold has nothing to do with reading it. Surely even you can grasp that?

Do you believe Gen. Grant saddled his own horse and rode off into the sunset in this Eastern? Do you believe this book is well-written?

Do you believe Secretary Stanton was part of the conspiracy to kill Mr. Lincoln? Do you believe the lies in this book about the treatment of Mary Surrat?

Neaklaus says:
F. Hollister, Can you provide verifiable independent proof of all your claims? Thank You for quoting a line from Shakespeare that I used on someone else's non-review. Does it really matter if Grant saddled his horse or ordered to be saddled? Can you provide proof of your defense of Stanton? Can you provide proof concering Mary Suratt? I really begin to doubt it!

You can ignore the truth all you want. Keep sticking up for Bull O'Really? and his lies.

How's that falafal thing workin' out for you? You betcha!
