520    "While waves of laughter echoed through the theater, James
       Ferguson kept his eyes focused on Abraham Lincoln. 
       Although the president joined the crowd with a 'hearty 
       laugh,' his interest seemingly lay more with someone 
       below. With his right elbow resting on the arm of his 
       chair and his chin lying carelessly on his hand, Lincoln 
       parted one of the flags nearby that he might see better. 
       "As the laughter subsided, Harry Hawk stood on the stage 
       alone with his back to the presidential box. Before he 
       could utter another word, a sharp crack sounded. As the 
       noise echoed throughout the otherwise silent theater, many
       thought that it was part of the play. But just as quickly,
       most knew it was not." -from Chapter Twelve "Among the 
       hundreds of books published about the assassination of our
       16th president, this is an exceptional volume.... [It 
       captures] a you-are-there feeling...." -Frank J. Williams,
       Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Rhode Island, 
       founding Chair of The Lincoln Forum, and member of the 
       U.S. Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission It was one of
       the most tragic events in American history: The famous 
       president, beloved by many, reviled by some, murdered 
       while viewing a play at Ford's Theater in Washington. The 
       frantic search for the perpetrators. The nation in 
       mourning. The solemn funeral train. The conspirators 
       brought to justice. Coming just days after the surrender 
       of the Confederate Army at Appomattox, the assassination 
       of Abraham Lincoln has become etched in the national 
       consciousness like few other events. The president who had
       steered the nation through its bloodiest crisis was cut 
       down before the end, just as it appeared that the 
       bloodshed was over. The story has been told many times, 
       but rarely with the immediacy of The Darkest Dawn. Thomas 
       Goodrich brings to his narrative the care of the historian
       and the flair of the fiction writer 
520 8  The result is a gripping account, filled with detail and 
       as fresh as today's news
