"The news of Abraham Lincoln's assassination on April 15, 1865, just days after Confederate surrender, astounded the war-weary nation. Massive crowds turned out for services and ceremonies. Countless expressions of grief and dismay were printed in newspapers and preached in sermons. Public responses to the assassination have been well chronicled, but this book is the first to delve into the personal and intimate responses of everyday people--Northerners and Southerners, soldiers and civilians, black people and white, men and women, rich and poor"--Dust jacket flap.

Moving, emotional and analytical at the same time. Capturess the zeitgeist through the words of real people, and combined it with other contemporaneous accounts to make for both leatned and heartfelt book. It is easy to see many of the roots of our contemporary issues in the lives and events, feelings and thoughts of the U.S. and it's citizens in 1865. A great and unique addition to the story of our lives.
