Newsweek: Lincoln—150 Years Later
On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, the man who successfully held together a divided nation was assassinated. Just five days after the surrender of General Robert E. Lee, it should have been a time for the nation to heal; instead America was faced with even more violence and tragedy. In recognition of the 150th anniversary of this event, Newsweek takes you back to the last days of this extraordinary man to the end of the Civil War. Filled with insights into the personal and political life of this great leader, details on key battles in the Civil War, a look inside the hunt for Lincoln's killer and more is this beautifully illustrated 100-page Collector's Edition.
