>>Greetings.
>>KU kas prevailed, the team of  Hank Stram has  fallen to the legacy team

>>The cut and paste  extract from the publisher is from the marketing side 
>of the house.
>>So  thar is all a null.
>>The publisher, on the publishing side of the house,  had not listed this 
>work as a history work.
>>In its own house.
>>No  one has refuted this simple statement.
>>So, if the publishing side does  not count this as a "history" 
>publication, all academic arguments are  void.
>>Indeed, every time the word "history" in reviews is sued, it is  with a 
>qualifier.
>>
>>Frankly, any book that has Lincoln furrowing  his brow, wanting to vomit 
>and having nightmares belongs  elsewhwere.
>>
>>Ford's Theater peddles this thing upstairs to make  a few bucks. In  the 
>history section, it is not  available.
>>
>>This is not a history book. Some may peddle it with  the word history, but 
>the publisher does not.
>>
>>No one has  refuted thsi simple  statemenr.

>>>> We can discuss terms, but Holt, the  publisher, does not list this as a 
>history book on its site. Maybe I am  looking for it wrong.  The terms used 
>aere samples of descriptions used  for the book, including the publishers 
>site.
>>> 
>>>  Yes.  You are wrong.  It is not a novel and the publisher - and  
>everyone else -  describes it as a history.
>>> 
>>> Here  is how the publisher describes it.
>>> 
>>> A riveting  historical narrative of the heart-stopping events 
>surrounding the  assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from  
>mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly
