Bloody Times: The Funeral of Abraham Lincoln and the Manhunt for Jefferson Davis

 

A great read!  This book is highly recommended for young people.  History is not dull in this chronicle of events that occurred as the civil war was drawing to a close.   Bloody Times is an adaptation of  James Swanson’s  bestselling book Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer.    It is full of unique and not commonly seen photographs, a who’s who of the civil war, a glossary, recommendations for further reading, and places to visit.  If you would like to introduce a reader to a great book in this time of the civil war sesquicentennial, this is it!  Check our catalog
