April Book

Hi All,

I was talking to my husband last night about our April book- Killing Lincoln.  He mentioned that when ti as released it was lambasted in the media for all of the historical inaccuracies.  I'm kind of a history snob, so I did some online sleuthing, and it seems as though it's true.  Just thought I'd share.  Personally, I'm not sure I'll be able to slog through it since I'll be constantly questioning the accuracy.  Here's a few links:

O'Reilly claims that there were only two errors and the backlash is a liberal conspiracy.....but I'm not quite sure I buy that since historic sites refused to carry the book.

See you all in March!
