The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest
manhunt in American history. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin, John
Wilkes Booth, led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild twelve-day chase
through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into
the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended
Civil War, watched in horror and sadness.
James L. Swanson's
Manhunt is a fascinating tale of murder, intrigue, and betrayal. A
gripping hour-by-hour account told through the eyes of the hunted and the
hunters, this is history as you've never read it before.
The Professor and the Madman, masterfully
researched and eloquently written, is an extraordinary tale of madness, genius,
and the incredible obsessions of two remarkable men that led to the making of
the Oxford English Dictionary—and literary history. The compilation of
the OED, begun in 1857, was one of the most ambitious projects ever
undertaken. As definitions were collected, the overseeing committee, led by
Professor James Murray, discovered that one man, Dr. W. C. Minor, had submitted
more than ten thousand. When the committee insisted on honoring him, a shocking
truth came to light: Dr. Minor, an American Civil War veteran, was also an
inmate at an asylum for the criminally insane.
