Based on James Swanson's bestselling adult book Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer, this young adult version brings students an accessible look at the assassination of a president and its aftermath. The page-turning story offers a moment-by-moment account of the 12-day hunt for John Wilkes Booth and his accomplices, taking readers on the wild chase through the swamps, rivers, forests, and fields of Maryland and Virginia.

Featuring historical illustrations and photos, this well-researched book was based on:

  • rare archival materials
  • trial transcripts
  • government reports
  • historical interviews with the relatives of the conspirators and the manhunters

Packed with rich details, this gripping nonfiction lets readers explore an exciting period in history.
