- Apr 14, 2005There is a great book called "When Lincoln Died" that is simply a group
of great photographs related to his assassination, plus a running
narrative of first-hand, eye-witness quotes. It tells the whole story
through they eyes of those that were there.
To do a book like Frassanito would be great, but an immense amount of
work, research-wise. Certainly, putting together a coherent narrative
from contemporary sources would be a great task, but nothing like
putting together a photo-history of the battle - wow!
