An actor named John Wilkes Booth does not like the outcome of the civil war. Booth believes that he must kill the president of the U.S. The climax of the book is the precise moment when Booth pulls the trigger when the actor Harry Hawks says a funny line in the play.

"When I leave the stage I will be the most talked about man in America." - John Wilkes Booth"Put down your guns and go home. Let's rebuild the nation toegther." Abraham Lincoln

The book Killing lincoln is told in 3rd person point of view, I liked how the author used this point of view to write his book. This makes it clear to understand about the book because a murder is about to happen and both characters have different thoughts on the Civil war.

The book Killing Lincoln is a story is about the life of Abraham Lincoln and John Wilkes Booths in the days leading up to his assasination.
