Assassinat Vaction by Sarah Vowell

 
I heard about this book this weekend, and it sounds like a great book to read!  Especially for APUSH students!  This author took her kids on a summer vacation to see the places of three presidents and where they were assassinated.  She is a great story teller, and will make you laugh.  Two stories she tells are:
1.  President Lincoln's son fell on train tracks, and a man saved him.  It was John Wilkes Booth's Dad!
2.  President Lincoln's son was present at 3 Presidents assassination - His Father's, Garfield's, and McKinley's.
 
It is now on bucket list - I hope you'll read it!
 
 
Here is the author on Letterman talking about her book
