Assassins' America: Four Killers, Four Murdered Presidents, and the Country They Left Behind

Abraham Lincoln watched a play. James Garfield walked through a train station. William McKinley shook hands with his public. John Kennedy smiled and waved from a motorcade. In these moments shots rang out and four presidents suffered mortal wounds. Some say their assassins were calculating killers. Others say they were madmen guided by strange notions of the world. Assassins’ America examines the lives of each killer and his victim. Their stories are full of twists and mysteries, and even today Americans live with lasting effects of these terrible crimes.

Reviews

School Library Journal Online - Debbie Tanner, S D Spady Montessori Elementary, FL

"Gunderson and Tougas ask readers a salient question: How would things be different if an assassinated president had survived to finish his term? . . .There are some narrative elements meant to help readers imagine the scenes of history. There are also some period photographs to help with the visualization and a time line to keep events in order. The background information is thorough enough to help students who don’t have a good handle on the time periods. Consider where students have a strong interest in presidential history." - School Library Journal Online
