5.0 out of 5 stars What an Incredible Story!
By Robert James Vandevoort (Show Low, Arizona) on August 10, 2020
Over the years, this reader has read many books about President Abraham Lincoln, yet the best one he has ever read was the recently released “The Lincoln Conspiracy” by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch. This is about the secret plot to kill America’s 16th president and why it failed. The research and writing were impressive. The reader goes back in time and you feel as if you are on the streets with the events unfolding.

This reader also either did not know or had forgotten the role of Allan Pinkerton and his agents who foiled the plot to kill the incoming president. He and his agents infiltrated the Democrats who planned to kill Lincoln prior to his inauguration. Simply a fascinating story.

There are many reflections to the political hatred between the Democrats and the Republicans then, as there are today. The Democrats then were the slave owners. The Republicans were the abolitionists. The resulting civil war was a dark period in American history and remains a topic of conversation today.

Great job Brad and Josh. This is a great work of history.
