The Day Lincoln Was Shot is the first illustrated account of the Lincoln assassination. Blending over 175 vintage photographs and illustrations with a lively narrative, author Richard Bak has created a spellbinding volume that graphically details, in words and pictures, one of the most heinous crimes in American history.

Lincoln is our secular saint; thus, it is understandable that the details and unresolved questions surrounding his martyrdom continue to fascinate us. In this companion book to an April 1998 docudrama on TNT, Bak and several contributing essayists track the key event from Booth's early, failed efforts at kidnapping through the trial and executions of the surviving conspirators. While much of this is familiar ground, Bak and his colleagues do emphasize some rather striking and intriguing aspects of the case, including the possible involvement of the Confederate government in the plot. They also provide interesting, if controversial, "clarifications" of the roles of such murky figures as Samuel Mudd and Lewis Paine. Both the basic text and the supplementary essays are written in a concise, nonpedantic style. The lavish illustrations, some disturbingly graphic, complement the text without overwhelming it. General readers should find this work particularly enjoyable, and even Lincoln scholars will find much that is useful here. Jay Freeman
