"To worry about death is to die a thousand times over instead of just once." ~ Abraham Lincoln
"Crook," Abraham Lincoln says to his bodyguard, "I believe there are men who want to take my life. And I have no doubt that they will do it."
The two men are walking down Pennsylvania Avenue, on their way back to the War Department for their second meeting of the day. Lincoln wants a short session with Stanton to discuss the fate of a Confederate ringleader who very recently made the mistake of crossing the border from Canada back into the United States.

Love him or hate him, Bill O'Reilly made history read like a thriller. I was less than enthusiastic about this book club choice but O'Reilly's recounting kept my interest and as a bonus, enhanced a trip as a chaperone for an 8th grade Washington DC trip!
