“Giant in the Shadows” discussed in Washington Post article

Washington Post reporter Gillian Brockell wrote an article on Robert Lincoln’s proximity to three presidential assassinations – quoting extensively from my book, Giant in the Shadows: The Life of Robert T. Lincoln, throughout the article.

“Though little remembered and often misunderstood, Robert Lincoln lived a remarkable life woven through with landmark historical events and spooky coincidences. (The most incredible of them: Months before John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln, Wilkes’ brother Edwin saved Robert from a dangerous fall on a railroad track.) It’s a life captured in the book “Giant in the Shadows: The Life of Robert T. Lincoln” by historian Jason Emerson, who, during his research, was the first person to read many of Robert’s private letters since they had been donated to the Library of Congress,” Brockell wrote in her article.
