As he jumped to the stage, he looked back and shouted "Sic semper tyrannis!" and fled into the night. And that's where most stories of the Lincoln assassination leave the escape of John Wilkes Booth, who was hunted down and killed twelve days later. Now historian James Swanson has painstakingly pieced together the day by day, even hour by hour, account of Booth's escape and eventual death. His book is called Manhunt.
