Manhunt: Chasing Lincoln's Killer

The Newseum's exhibit, "Manhunt: Chasing Lincoln's Killer," explores how new developments in journalism and technology came together in the news coverage of Abraham Lincoln's death and the hunt for his killer. The exhibit was created in collaboration with James L. Swanson, author of "Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer."
