Quick read about Lincoln’s death and funeral and the capture of Jefferson Davis (who never surrendered even after all his generals had). Apparently the text was “skinnied-down” for YA readers, and while I learned some interesting details, the narrative never really took off for me. Great pictures (photos and cartoons) throughout book.
