Lincoln's Last Days by Bill O'Reilly and Dwight Jon Zimmerman

Lincoln's last days is one of the most dramatic stories in American history--how one gunshot changed the country forever.  This book was adapted from Bill O'Reilly's bestselling Killing Lincoln, but is a wonderful book for children and adults alike.  It is filled with abundant illustrations (including period photographs), maps, and art.  In the back of the book there is a Recommended Reading list, as well as Recommended Websites, Recommended DVD viewing, Twenty Important and Interesting Facts about the Civil War, and a section on Finding Lincoln in the Nation's Capital Today.  It is history that reads like a thriller.
