Hillbilly,

I have to echo what Doc C. said. Mike Kauffman is a friend of mine but I would say this even if I didn't know him. The study of Lincoln's assassination has been a passion for Mike for decades. He even went so far as to burn down a tobacco barn like the one Booth and Herold were trapped in just to see how long it would take for the flames to reach the point that they did before Booth was shot. His book and "Blood on the Moon" by Ed Steers are, in my opinion, the gold standard when it comes to studies of Lincoln's murder.

Doc, I have to say this. Saying Kauffman is better than Swanson's fetid piece of tripe is like saying getting kissed by a pretty girl is better than a foot in the groin!;):D


Best
Rob
