Lincoln’s Last Days: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever Bill O’Reilly
adaptation of the adult book Killing Lincoln
After Bill O’Reilly wrote Killing Lincoln, he set out to create a younger version. Thus, Lincoln’s Last Days, was born.
The book has four parts which makes it a little daunting for young readers, particularly those who are reluctant readers. But the author breaks the book down into four sections to invite readers in a little more. It starts with the end of the Civil War through John Wilkes Booth and his accomplices’ planning of the president’s death and the search to find his assassinators.

Maps, original pictures and drawings add to the understanding of the events surrounding Lincoln’s death.

The book ends with additional information including the “afterword” which gives details about Lincoln’s family. The “interesting facts” presents period information about medicine, flags and weapons of the Civil War, transportation, a timeline, a glossary of military terms and a list of books and websites recommended by the author for further reading.
