Quite the title, huh?
But it does indeed describe this nonfiction historical account. Being raised in Illinois,(I even lived in Springfield for a few years as a child), Lincoln has always been a hero. Now I'm living in Alabama; so it was good to learn more about the history here in the Southern states. The book does a good job of handling both biographies, comparing the two fallen leaders, and contrasting the final journeys which shaped their legends and place in history. The plot focus and information about mourning pageants and funeral customs of the time caught my morbid interests as well.
