Learn where Lincoln’s heavily armed and reliable bodyguard, Ward Hill Lamon, was on April 14, 1865 when the president attended a platy at Ford’s Theater in this interesting historical novel.

President Lincoln’s trusted friend, former law partner and heavily armed bodyguard, Ward Hill Lamon, is the subject of this new historical novel. Lamon snuck Lincoln into Washington prior to the Inauguration when detective Allan Pinkerton uncovered a plot to assassinate Lincoln when his train passed through Baltimore.

Lamon was in charge of the dedication of the national cemetery at Gettysburg on November 19, 1863. Many nights he slept on the floor outside the Lincoln bedroom in the White House to protect the president.

But he was not at Ford’s Theater on April 14, 1865 when the president was shot.

  Lincoln Lover Gains New Knowledge , 06/11/2007
Reviewer: Joanne
I have been a student of Lincoln history for many years, especially after growing up in Illinois. This book offered much new insight into the man who was beside Lincoln for many years. I learned so much about Ward Hill Lamon, and the intimate working relationship they shared. Lamon's sometimes paranoid fears balanced with Lincoln's laidback, not to worry attitude about his personal safety. How ironic that Lincoln would not take the worries of Lamon seriously. Maybe history would have been different. Bob O'Connor's compelling story gives new information written in an interesting, enjoyable historical work. Thanks, Bob, and keep these great stories coming!
