內容簡介 "A Hidden Indictment: What the Slaves and Freedmen Knew About the Lincoln Assassination," provides the reader with a brief history of the development of the country, including major civil war battles, and a new perspective about the facts and events leading up to and surrounding the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln as seen through the eyes and ears of Slaves and Freedmen. The book tells the story of an African-American enslaved woman (Mary Simms), who testified as one of the chief government prosecution witnesses against the Lincoln assassination conspirators. The author is believed to be a distant relative of Mary Simms. "Frazer Walton revisits the Lincoln assassination conspiracy with a fresh look at the testimony of a slave whose ignored comments could have widened the investigation had she been listened to by authorities. Walton's book delves into the shadowy world of spies, double-dealers, and politicians during the American Civil War. Proving the theories he brings up may be impossible 150 years later, but his research into old records makes for interesting speculation." Clint Johnson, noted American Civil War author of eight books on the civil war, including his well-known book the "Pursuit." "Frazer Walton has fashioned an inspirational book, a page turner that will leave the reader gasping and asking for more. He has resurrected hidden American history for our consideration. And he has done it in the form of a griping and trilling mystery that will hold you spell bound until the last page. It is a remarkable and complex story, as it tells the truth about the assassination and the facts surrounding it, a truth that for all these years has remained hidden." Mark Lane, was a famous trial attorney, New York state legislator, civil rights activist and author. He has written several New York Times Best sellers (Rush to Judgment and Plausible Denial) about the assassination of American President John F. Kennedy.
