Description

Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, The Assassins Accomplice tells the gripping story of the conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln through experience of its only female participant. Confederate sympathizer Mary Surratt ran a boarding house in Washington, and the depth of her complicity in the murder of President Lincoln has been debated since she was arrested on April 17, 1865. Calling upon long-lost interviews, confessions, and court testimony, historian Kate Clifford Larson magnificently captures how Surratts actions defied nineteenth-century norms of piety and allegiance. A riveting account of espionage and murder, The Assassins Accomplice offers a revealing examination of Americas most remembered assassination.
