My book Lincoln’s Last Days by Bill O’Reilly and Dwight Jon Zimmerman is about, as the name suggests, the last days of Abraham Lincoln.

This book brought together the writing techniques of some of the most famous books and combined it with historically accurate facts and battles. It went into depth describing the assassination plan, and immersed me in its action. Lincoln’s Last Days is, in my opinion, a classic tale that needs to be told for centuries to
