In his 1929 book, Myths After Lincoln, author Lloyd Lewis (1891 - 1949) collected many of the various lies, half-truths, legends and tall tales that have, in the fullness of time, snow-balled to such monstrous proportions as to have us all believe that the man was a mystic who was blessed with dreams of foreboding.

The myth of Lincoln's funeral train appearing as an apparition once a year is discussed, as are the legends that John Wilkes Boothe, like Elvis, survived the Virginia barn fire, where he is believed to have died and escaped into the Western territories.

Attached is the book review.
