Last night I started reading a new book and had a hard time putting it down. I've had many students read this book and heard great things about it. Abraham Lincoln's life has always fascinated me. He worked so hard to get where he was and before he had time to celebrate his accomplishments, his life was stolen from him. So far this book has described the events leading up to the night of the assassination including John Wilkes Booth's plans to make President Lincoln's death a certainty. The nonfiction account includes playbills, newspaper articles and other memorabilia from the time. It has been a great read and I am excited to find out more! If you are looking for a great nonfiction read, try this out!
