Excerpt from The Man Who Killed Lincoln: The Story of John Wilkes Booth and His Part in the Assassination

He hated the smug Yankees around him. He was Sick Of their incessant cheering, irritated by their enthusiasm. He was smiling contemptuously as he watched the parade, but his face twitched nervously in the red glare of the torches. He had gathered his long cloak around him in his favorite theatrical pose, for even in his misery he was still the actor.

Yet his unhappiness was real enough. His mind was numbed with fatigue and disaster. For two days he had been unable to sleep at all. Minute guns had been fired in an endless salvo Of victory, and their thunder had beaten like hammer blows against his brain until he had found himself Counting Off the seconds in order to anticipate each explosion. And through all the confusion of sounds and images came the realization that his beloved South was being crushed in defeat. That thought was with him al ways, and there was no escaping it.
