    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    What did you love best about Killing Lincoln?

    I learned some aspects about the Lincoln assassination which were previously unknow to me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Lincoln?

    The part I found most memorable was learning that Lincoln was supposed to have a bodyguard controlling egress to his booth at the Ford Theater and this duffus ended up taking off to indulge in some drinks at the bar next door. If he'd stayed at his post and resisted Booth's undeterred entrance to Lincoln's booth, the whole assassination attempt would have probably been foiled and the subsequent history would have taken a whole different path. That this clown went unpunished while all the southern conspirators ended up with a bullet through the throat or at the end of a rope (even Mary Surrott) makes one recognize that the idoicies of our current era are not necessarily any more ridiculous than the ones of 137 years ago.


    What does Bill O'Reilly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I've been a fan of Bill O'Reilly on Fox News'


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The fact that Linocln hung on as long as he did, and died the next day made his ultimate demise seem all the more moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Access to this audio book was a Christmas gift from my son. I've enjoyed having the opportunity to hear this particular book read by one of my favorite TV news commentators, so I want to thank my son for his generosity.
