Description

Five days after the surrender of Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, and two weeks before the surrender of the last major Confederate army the nation suffered its greatest loss when Abraham Lincoln was tragically murdered by John Wilkes Booth. Booth’s murder of Lincoln was the result of a previously failed plot to capture Lincoln and turn him over to Confederate leaders in Richmond. Booth, along with his cohort ,David Herold, made his escape into Southern Maryland. For twelve days the two fugitives, with the help of members of the Confederate underground, made their way through Maryland and Virginia before being cornered in a tobacco farm near Bowling Green where Herold was captured and Booth killed. “The Escape and Capture of John Wilkes Booth” tells the day by day story of Booth’s attempt to escape capture, and the people who risked everything to help him. It is the story of America’s greatest manhunt told by the leading authority on Lincoln’s assassination.

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
