The Lincoln Assassination

Crime and Punishment, Myth and Memory A Lincoln Forum Book

Edited by Harold Holzer, Craig L. Symonds, and Frank J. Williams

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Abraham Lincoln is an object of deep fascination for the American people, and, in turn, his assassination has engaged more interest and stirred up more controversy than any other part of his life.
  • Covers everything from religious sermons to spontaneous outbursts on the street to military jurisprudence.
  • The essays in this collection are compelling and provocative; they have great appeal to both professional and amateur historians, as well as Lincoln and Civil War hobbyists.
