Holiday Gift Guide #6 - Manhunt

Manhunt: The 12-day chase for Lincoln's Killer by James L. Swanson

A detailed re-telling, from numerous viewpoints of John Wilkes Booth escape and capture after the assassination of President Lincoln.

Even 141 years after the murder, this story still intrigues and resonates in the American psyche. Using original source material, including Booth's own hastily written diary entries, author James L. Swanson creates a vivid picture of those 12-days when Booth escaped Washington, D.C., eluded capture in Maryland and Virginia and his final moments on Garrett's farm.
