The Lincoln Murder Conspiracies. Believers in conspiracy are not discouraged by the lack of evidence, because they can easily convince themselves that the evidence has been destroyed by conspirators seeking to protect themselves or others.

The Lincoln Conspiracy is a book by David W. Balsiger and Charles E. Sellier, Jr. promoting certain conspiracy theories concerning the 1865 assassination of . President Abraham Lincoln. The central premise of the book is that "traditional" historians have perpetuated a cover-up, originally orchestrated by Lincoln's Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton(D) and some Radical Republican allies in 1865, by over-reliance on false documentation produced by Stanton and his conspirators.

Hanchett, The Lincoln Murder Conspiracies, 107) On the other side, some people argued for the existence of a kidnapping plot because it bolstered their desire to connect Booth with a larger conspiracy masterminded by the Confederacy. With the abduction plot established, the question remains: Who was actually behind and involved in the assassination of the President? The Simple Conspiracy Theory. This conspiracy theory was a fresh look at the Lincoln assassination as investigated by Otto Eisenschiml and reported in his book Why Was Lincoln Murdered? It implicated the divisive figure Secretary of War Edwin Stanton.

Willard Carl Klunder. TheLincoln Murder Conspiracies. Confederate conspiracy contains little new information

Willard Carl Klunder. bana: University of Illinois Press, 1983. 303. Illustrations, notes, bibliography, index. As William Hanchett points out in the introduction. to. this fine book, most Americans have. Confederate conspiracy contains little new information. He gives only brief attention to the attempts by Radical Repub-licans to implicate Andrew Johnson in the assassination and does not even mention the visits of Benjamin F. Butler and James. 183. Ashley to Sanford Conover in the Washington jail and their ap-parent attempts to suborn perjury among the inmates there.

Clears up misconceptions spread by various conspiracy theories, recounts the factual evidence concerning Lincoln's assassination, and explains why such unproved theories have been so popular
I am glad I read this book as I really did not know that there were conspiracy theories. I thought it was well known that Boothe and his team worked in tandem, committed the crime, fled, were caught and hanged. Little did I know that there were many thoughts and actions to investigate who else was involved. This well researched book goes into each school of thought and tells each one well. I also did not know there was a whole industry that just studies the assassination of Lincoln. The writer discusses this aspect, as well. Not really a book about Abe or his presidency, just a book about the assassination and the theories of who committed it, how they committed it and why they committed it.
Hanchett's book was probably better when first published than it is today. It is certainly not a bad book, but it was written at a time when, it seems, not many historians had turned to the topic. We are now blessed with a multitude of well-researched books on all aspects of the Lincoln assassination (from a compilation of eyewitness accounts in "We Saw Lincoln Shot", to the popular "Manhunt" account of Booth's flight, to other excellent books like "Blood on the Moon" and "American Brutus" - I am neglecting many others, but the point is the last two decades have seen a rebirth in interest in the topic).

Hanchett 'cleans house', in a way, by chronicling the popular, controversial, and outlandish theories and conspiracies that had dominated the prior 100 years and change. Particular emphasis was paid to the likes of Otto Eisenschiml and his 'Stanton' conspiracy theory, the theories about Jefferson and the Canadian Confederate agents directing Booth, some strange theories involving Lincoln himself (including one bizarre tale of Lincoln purportedly telling a former Supreme Court Justice, who was a Confederate, that he wanted him to come back to help legally defeat the 14th amendment), and the 'Catholic connection' conspiracy theory, among others. One of the strengths of this book is the way he tackles these theories, details the people on who started them, the milieu in which they were born, and then the ways in which they are found wanting. He does not tell the full story of either the assassination or the escape and capture (a point he makes clear at the outset), thus this is a poor book with which to begin learning about the events of April 1865, but it is invaluable if one wants to look back and deepen one's understanding of the progression of thought and the whys and hows of some of the more pervasive myths.

Succinct, clear, and well-researched, Hanchett has written a book that any Lincoln/Booth aficionado should read at some point.
For a Lincoln assassination buff, I'd rate this book as essential. Thoroughly documented with excellent notes and a good bibliography, it pulls together many rumors and most of the players on the scene April 14, 1865. So in terms of a source for ideas on the conspirators, real and imagined, it is excellent.
It can be a bit dry reading at times but the true Lincoln follower will have no trouble getting through. The amount of information can be a little intimidating but if one uses 'The Lincoln Assassination Encyclopedia' alongside this book most questions arising in the reader's mind will be answered.
A great deal of myth surrounds the murder of Abraham Lincoln. Partly this is due to John Wilkes Booth dying before he had his day in court. This book examines those myths, explores their sources and allows the reader to determine for himself what level of validity ought to be attached to them.
As such it is a worthwhile part of the vast library of Lincoln literature. I recommend it for a place in the library of any collector of Lincoln books.
A very convincing study of different conspiracies, both by Booth and others to capture Lincoln during the war and when the war ended, the conspiracies turned to murder, with Booth hoping that if the conspiracy would cause the Confederacy would to deny the peace treaty and in the confusion of the murder would attack and take over Washington. Had it worked, the whole government would have been decapitated.
I have read most of the books on the Lincoln Assassination and this one seems to be very well researched. It addresses the popular conspiracies from Jefferson Davis to Secretary of War Stanton and through meticulous detail debunks them. Until someone comes up with new material this seems to be the final word.
