Bloody Times by James L. Swanson

Bloody Times is a historical nonfiction account about
the manhunt for Jefferson Davis and the funeral procession
of Abraham Lincoln. It is about the long funeral train
that carried the 16th President home to Illinois. It is
also about the manhunt for Jefferson Davis. Jefferson
Davis was the first and last president of the Confederate
States of America. He decided to flee to the deep south to
evade capture from the federal troops that were searching
for him. The Funeral trains route was covered in black
crepe at each stop ,to mourn the fallen President of the
United States of America. Each major city hosted a great
arrival for the fallen president.

The book was very informative. It was some of the
best work I've seen by this author. It is a great
historical nonfiction for readers looking for a good book
on this period of American history. It was a great book
and I loved it.
