Swanson, James. Chasing Lincoln’s Killer. YA/ 973.7/ SWA
This story is true. All the characters are real and were alive during the great manhunt of April 1865. Their words are authentic and come from original sources. Based on rare archival material, obscure trial manuscripts, and interviews with relatives of the conspirators and the manhunters, CHASING LINCOLN'S KILLER is a fast-paced thriller about the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth: a wild twelve-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia.
