Book Assassination Vacation

Download or read book Assassination Vacation written by Sarah Vowell and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2005-04-04 with total page 273 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: New York Times bestselling author of The Wordy Shipmates and contributor to NPR’s This American Life Sarah Vowell embarks on a road trip to sites of political violence, from Washington DC to Alaska, to better understand our nation’s ever-evolving political system and history. Sarah Vowell exposes the glorious conundrums of American history and culture with wit, probity, and an irreverent sense of humor. With Assassination Vacation, she takes us on a road trip like no other—a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage. From Buffalo to Alaska, Washington to the Dry Tortugas, Vowell visits locations immortalized and influenced by the spilling of politically important blood, reporting as she goes with her trademark blend of wisecracking humor, remarkable honesty, and thought-provoking criticism. We learn about the jinx that was Robert Todd Lincoln (present at the assassinations of Presidents Lincoln, Garfield, and McKinley) and witness the politicking that went into the making of the Lincoln Memorial. The resulting narrative is much more than an entertaining and informative travelogue—it is the disturbing and fascinating story of how American death has been manipulated by popular culture, including literature, architecture, sculpture, and—the author’s favorite—historical tourism. Though the themes of loss and violence are explored and we make detours to see how the Republican Party became the Republican Party, there are all kinds of lighter diversions along the way into the lives of the three presidents and their assassins, including mummies, show tunes, mean-spirited totem poles, and a nineteenth-century biblical sex cult.

Book Summary of Sarah Vowell s Assassination Vacation

Download or read book Summary of Sarah Vowell s Assassination Vacation written by Everest Media, and published by Everest Media LLC. This book was released on 2022-06-11T22:59:00Z with total page 27 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I had intended to spend the first act of 1776, a musical about the Declaration of Independence, ignoring the stage and staring at Abraham Lincoln's box from my balcony seat. But I was sucked into the play, and I spent the second act in the Lincoln Museum basement. #2 The play gives the audience a sense of the anguish, embarrassment, and disappointment Adams and Jefferson felt when they yielded to the southerners’ demands. This country was formed for the white, not for the black man, John Wilkes Booth reportedly wrote on the day he shot Lincoln. #3 The contents of John Wilkes Booth’s pockets also get the glass case treatment. At Ford’s Theatre, I looked at the five photographs of women in his pockets when he died, and I couldn’t help but believe that I had picked up new insight into his character. #4 I love reading the Second Inaugural speech, which was delivered at the end of the war. It is full of sarcasm and writing, and it shows how Lincoln thought and governed.
