On April 22, 1865, Brevet Colonel H. L. Burnett was assigned to head the investigation into the murder of President Abraham Lincoln and the attempted murder of Secretary of State William H. Seward. Burnett orchestrated the collection of thousands of documents for the Military Commission’s trial of the conspirators. This deep archive of documentary evidence--consisting of letters, depositions, eyewitness accounts, investigative reports, and other documents--provides invaluable insight into the historical, cultural, and judicial context of the investigation. Only a fraction of the information presented in these documents ever made its way into the trial, and most of it has never been readily accessible. By presenting an annotated and indexed transcription of these documents, this volume offers significant new access to information on the events surrounding the assassination and a vast new store of social and political history of the Civil War era. “With tears in my eyes I think it your duty to hang every rebel caught. I feel as bad as if was my own mother or father & will be one to volunteer to try & shoot every Southern man. May God have mercy on the man’s soul that done such a deed. With much Respect for our Country, I remain Weeping” --Anonymous letter, New York, April 15, 1865 “I know Booth. He was in the habit of coming to my place to shoot. . . . He shot well, and practiced to shoot with accuracy in every possible position. . . . He was a quick shot; always silent, reticent.” --Deposition of Benjamin Barker, Pistol Gallery proprietor

Book & CD. Born in Quebec, Charles Chiniquy gained great fame as a crusading priest for temperance who also established French-Canadian communities in Illinois. It was there that the celebrated priest first made Abraham Lincoln's acquaintance when the popular Springfield lawyer defended him in the most high profile libel case in Lincoln's career. Not long after this, because of the great shortcomings he saw in its teachings and practice, Chiniquy left the Catholic Church and became a Protestant. In his extremely popular autobiography, "Fifty Years in The Church of Rome", Chiniquy reported that after the murder of his close friend, the President, he travelled to Washington to conduct his own inquiry. He met with high ranking government officials who told him that they had no doubt that the Jesuits were behind Lincoln's slaying but they wanted to keep this from the public to avoid giving new life to the broken rebellion and to avert possible bloodshed between Catholics and Protestants. For their role in the plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln and other high government officials, eight people were put on trial before a military commission. Evidently, one of those officials who believed that the assassination was a Catholic plot was a dominant member of Lincoln's cabinet, the man who was, in reality, in charge of the United States government in the hours and weeks after the murder and who also headed the official investigation into the assassination, Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton. This is part of the evidence that clearly points to Roman Catholic complicity in the murder of the President as well as general hostility to America and its democratic institution. Also included: The New York City Draft Riots. Ten days after the battle of Gettysburg, with the army essentially gone from the city, huge blood-thirsty mobs, lynching people, torching buildings, looting and destroying property, opposed only by a vastly outnumbered police force, threatened not only the existence of New York but the whole nation as well. These ferocious mobs that, among other things, fought and killed police and soldiers, beat black people to death and burned buildings with the inhabitants still in them, were essentially all Roman Catholic. Mary Surratt: A devout Roman Catholic, she was the first woman ever executed by the American government for her part in the assassination plot headquartered in her boarding-house. A majority of the conspirators were Catholic, including, the assassin, John Wilkes Booth, at a time when Romanists made up a small fraction of the U.S. population. St Joseph: The assassination was spoken in this solidly Catholic town in Minnesota hours before it occurred . . . and much more. A CD of over 3,300 pages of supporting documentation, including the court records of those put on trial for conspiring to assassinate Lincoln and other officials is also part of this work.

The assassination of Abraham Lincoln changed the course of American history. Every school child knows that President Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes Booth, an actor, at Fords Therater. But it seems no one is taught that this assassination was a true conspiracy. The initial plan of Booth and his co-conspirators was to kidnap Lincoln, but the plan was then changed to the simultaneous murder of the President, Vice President, and Secretary of State. Few people know that eight people were tried by the United States government, found guilty, and four of them were subsequently executed for conspiring to asassinate the President of the United States. Dr. Boyd tells the story of a nation struggling over the question of slavery, Lincolns election, the major events of the Civil War, and the conspiracy to assassinate one of the most beloved Presidents of the United States. Much more a narrative than an historical treatise, his concise style and the incredible story, illustrated with images of the people involved, captivate readers from start to fi nish. Every American who reads this book will be surprised by what their teachers did not reveal about Lincolns assassination. The book is a must read for those interested in the Civil War and for anyone who admires Abraham Lincoln.
