Michael W. Kauffman, author of American Brutus: John Wilkes Booth and the Lincoln Conspiracies, has been exploring and writing about the Lincoln assassination for over forty years. His investigations have taken him to every location connecting the conspirators with the assassination and given him access to evidence and artifacts that few others have seen in person. Now, for the first time, Michael has compiled the best of these stories into an illustrated history book and a comprehensive audio tour that guides the listener across the hills and swamps encountered by John Wilkes Booth on his flight from Washington after the Lincoln assassination.
