How a nation grieves : press accounts of the death of Lincoln, the hunt for John Wilkes Booth, and America in mourning( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How a Nation Grieves is unique among the 16,000 books about Abraham Lincoln. It does not offer historical interpretation or the perspective of hindsight. It simply presents the country as it was and as it saw itself at the time. It isn't the diagnosis of shock. It's the shock itself. It also presents a different kind of journalism. Words had to convey images that were still unavailable to photography and television. Newspapers were the only source of public information. Those newspapers -- the ones that survived the next 150 years -- are still the way we can witness what happened to Abraham Lincoln and the nation he saved -- publisher's website
