it was amazing
bookshelves: real-life

I haven't read much history in my time, but this was a really fascinating read. The author did a great job of weaving the tale together with a mix of storytelling and direct quotes from various sources (apparently, there were a ton!). I really enjoyed getting to know John Wilkes Booth and got a real sense for the "vibe" in the DC area as the Civil War ended. I learned a lot about the sentiments of the time, and the anguish that people were experiencing as our people and country continued to evolve. Highly recommend.
