2. My Thoughts Be Bloody: The Bitter Rivalry Between Edwin and John Wilkes Booth that Led to an American Tragedy

The fascinating new book "My Thoughts Be Bloody: The Bitter Rivalry Between Edwin and John Wilkes Booth that Led to an American Tragedy" by Nora Titone, to be published Oct. 19, takes an even closer look at the hotheaded assassin and his brother, the country's most esteemed Shakespearean actor. The author thinks family dynamics played a major role in Booth's tragic transformation.

Edwin Booth, who'd earlier saved the life of Lincoln's son Robert, was shattered by the assassination yet held onto his title as one of the country's most esteemed men. Amazingly, a future president would toast him and his greatness.
