Summary: "In a time when brother was pitted against brother, no family was more divided than the Booths. The United States has become violently polarized. Political fanaticism divides an embittered populace. A recently elected President--an energizing symbol of change for some, and a harbinger of the downfall of America for others--stands at the center of the turmoil. It is 1865, and John Wilkes Booth is about to assassinate the President of the United States. From the pen of American historian C.C. Colbert and the brush of French comics master Tanitoc comes a thought-provoking perspective on one of the greatest villains of U.S. History: a killer who was also an actor, a lover, a doubter, and, in his own mind, a patriot." -- from Macmillan web site
