Program Description

Event Details

Join us for Behind the Book with Troy Taylor as he presents on his new book, "One Night in Washington: The True Story of America's Most Haunted President".

Troy Taylor lifts the veil from Lincoln’s often macabre and eerie life, from his eerily accurate visions of the future to his embrace of Spiritualist mediums in the White House. Using forgotten newspapers and vintage sources, this is the most complete book ever published about Lincoln’s haunted life, and within these pages, Taylor reveals Lincoln’s dreams of death, spirits around the séance table, and how the occult affected Lincoln’s life until one tragic night at Ford’s Theater in Washington.
