The news of Abraham Lincoln's assassination on April 15, 1865, just days after Confederate surrender, astounded the war-weary nation. Massive crowds turned out for services and ceremonies. Countless expressions of grief and dismay were printed in newspapers and preached in sermons. Public responses to the assassination have been well chronicled, but this book delves into the personal and intimate responses of everyday people-northerners and southerners, soldiers and civilians, black people and white, men and women, rich and poor.
