Notable Historical Trials IV – The Assassination of Lincoln

This chapter in the Folio’s book on historical trials is a bit of a departure, as it really doesn’t concentrate nearly as much on the trial itself.

It does follow the conspiracy as it shifts from a kidnapping to murder in the last days of the Civil War, the partial breakup and execution of the plan.  It follows the escape of Booth and the chase and final killing in Virginia.  It is a nice overview.

But then the trial itself is dispatched in just a few pages that really don’t seem to delve very deeply.  Kind of disappointing.
