A suspense-filled true-crime thriller that brings to life two epic events of the Civil War era: the chase to apprehend Confederate president Jefferson Davis and the momentous 20-day funeral that took Abraham Lincoln's body home to Springfield following his assassination. Bloody Times is New York Times bestselling author James L. Swanson's young readers' adaptation of his acclaimed book for adults Bloody Crimes.

A true tale full of fascinating twists and turns, and lavishly illustrated with dozens of rare historical images--some never before seen--Bloody Times captures the riveting stories of these two influential men as they made their last journeys through the bloody landscape of a wounded nation.

This young readers' edition contains a note from the author, a glossary, a list of important figures of the Civil War era, and a guide to visiting the sites mentioned in the book.

display_description On the morning of April 2, 1865, Jefferson Davis received a telegram from General Robert E. Lee. There is no more time--the Yankees are coming, it warned. That night Davis fled Richmond, setting off an intense manhunt for the Confederate president. Two weeks later, President Lincoln was assassinated, and the nation was convinced that Davis was involved in the conspiracy that led to the crime. Lincoln's murder, autopsy, and White House funeral transfixed the nation. His final journey began when soldiers placed his corpse aboard a special train that would carry him home to Springfield, Illinois. It was the most magnificent funeral pageant in American history.
