Synopsis: A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega-bestselling author Bill OReilly The anchor of The OReilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American historyhow one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of Americas Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincolns generous terms for Robert E. Lees surrender are devised to fulfill Lincolns dream of healing a divided nation, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased. In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington D.C., John Wilkes Boothcharismatic ladies man and impenitent racistmurders Abraham Lincoln at Fords Theatre. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the countrys most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executionsincluding that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. Featuring some of historys most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.
