The Lincoln Conspiracy by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch

Book Cover

Very good book, well researched. Draws upon a lot of sources and paints a good picture of the times and the very real threat to the life of Abraham Lincoln before he ever took office. There is still debate as to the viability of the threat and conspiracy, but when you read this book you can certain understand why many thought this is a credible threats sand why the cloak of secrecy shrouded his journey through Baltimore just a few days before his Inauguration. The pressure he was under was supreme and therefore dangerous and desperate times called for undercover work, and unorthodox methods (at the time). No idea why interesting history, such as this, never makes it into the classroom – nobody who reads this will ever think that History is boring!
