Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Counterfeiting was big business in the 1860s. So was snatching bodies. Here, in the short-form book, is the story of the men who plotted to steal Abraham Lincoln's body as a way to bribe the government to free the country's finest engravers of counterfeit money.
