Lincoln Shot  So begins this intimate portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Conceived as a one year anniversary edition of a newspaper, dated April 14, 1866, strongly evocative of the time and the nation's mood. The account in the flight, capture, and hanging of some of the conspirators is riveting. The moment-by-moment recital making use of the events from the day that ended in assassination holds readers enthralled awaiting the tragic end.

From there, Denenberg moves to the log cabin in Kentucky and Lincoln's life unfolds. Denenberg's Lincoln is ambitious and modest. The boy, the man, the husband also as the father is portrayed as a trifle clumsy, frequently unsure of himself, and plagued by dark moods. He struggles with his role as leader since the Civil War nears.
