Chasing Lincoln's Killer by James L Swanson- review by K.C. age 12

Summary- This is a book about a true story. The main characters are Booth, Lincoln, and Powel along with the calvary. Booth killed Lincoln with a single bullet. While he did that his crew worked on killing other important members of the government. The mostly all escaped and weren't punished yet. They all ended up being hung or imprisoned and Booth was killed.

Whit did I like/not like about this book- I liked learning about this in depth and knowing more about history. I enjoyed learning about how people reacted in those situations. It was also amazing to see how they did ot die instantly by the bullet. The one thing I disliked was the detail of the killing and all of the horrible description of how that affected people.
