Summary

The headline that shocked the nation: President Lincoln Shot by Assassin John Wilkes Booth! One of the most exciting stories in American history told with full color illustrations.

The fifth installment in Don Brown's Actual Times series featuring significant days in American history covers the Lincoln assassination and the ensuing manhunt. In He Has Shot the President! both Lincoln and Booth emerge as vivid characters, defined by the long and brutal Civil War, and set on a collision course toward tragedy. With his characteristic straightforward storytelling voice and dynamic water color illustration, Don Brown gives readers a chronological account of the events and also captures the emotion of the death of America's greatest president.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Practically any school-age child can tell you that John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln while he watched a play. Few of them, however, are probably familiar with the names of Booth's coconspirators or the fact that the assassination was only part of a much larger plan that included other assassinations. Nor do they likely know about the manhunt to find Booth, the details of his ultimate demise, or the poignant train ride that carried Lincoln's body back to Springfield, Illinois, during which nearly a quarter of the nation paid their respects, including hundreds of African Americans. Brown, a prolific writer of history books for children, lays out the overarching story vividly but soberly, offering salient details that give human qualities to the facts of the past. His dramatic art, painted in historically evocative colors, is as effective in conveying the terror of Lewis Powell's attack on the bedridden Secretary of State William Seward as it is in showing the sorrow of those gathered around Lincoln's deathbed. An excellent and accessible way into history for young readers.--Karp, Jesse Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The fifth book in the Actual Times series is a sober account of the assassination of President Lincoln. Booth "believed that robbing the Union of the president's leadership would cripple the North and save the South," writes Brown; the assassination takes place early on, and the brunt of the book follows Booth's attempted flight, Lincoln's death, and the "relentless, sweeping investigation" to find Booth and his conspirators. Brown's shadowy pencil-and-watercolor images mitigate some of the horror of events that included multiple shootings, stabbings, and the eventual hanging of four involved with the assassination plot. Even so, a sense of the nation's loss reverberates through this harrowing recounting. Ages 6-9. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
