In stock


Dorothy Meserve Kunhardt and Philip B. Kunhardt, Jr. produced Twenty Days 100 years after Lincoln’s Assassination and Funerals. This book, created from their family collection, has hooked students of Lincoln for fifty years. This beautiful book, containing more than 300 illustrations, tells the moving story of twenty fateful days in America’s history: from the night of April 14, 1865, when Abraham Lincoln was shot, to the afternoon of his burial in Springfield. This is a truly great book, one at least partially responsible for the creation of many Civil War enthusiasts (this cataloger included). Lightly torn dust jacket; usual wear; else very good.

Kunhardt, Dorothy Meserve, and Kunhardt, Philip B., Jr. TWENTY DAYS. (New York: 1965). 312p., illustrated.
