My Year Stumbling Through the Undergrowth that is the Quagmire called the JFK Research Community - what I learned from in depth immersion into the online research community and the many pitfalls one can encounter when traveling in this very scary place. While portions of documents and evidence will be touched upon, this book is primarily focused on the other researchers and forums in the field.
After fifty years, there have been thousands of books on JFK's assassination and yet no resolution. Perhaps by examining the plot to kill the alleged assassin, one might make some better headway on the case. It could be Oswald's death may be the key to unlocking the entirety of the conspiracy to kill Kennedy. The parallels with the Lincoln assassination are obvious when stripped to the bare bones.
The best and brightest scientists in the country are taken to a secret refuge in order to survive a world-ending cataclysm. A small group decides to try and circumvent the disaster but are told any attempt would be futile. Rather than sit cozy and watch the planet be destroyed, they escape the retreat and fight all government opposition to save the world in spite of the official inactivity.
Many conspiracy buffs put Edwin Stanton in the mix of the plot to kill Lincoln. Nothing could have been further from the truth. The evidence easily proves his innocence but opens his involvement in and even darker plot of his own creation: the quiet extermination of the assassin, John Wilkes Booth. With the actor dead, Stanton's secret would remain forever hidden. But what was it he wanted hidden?
Grasping at his last chance to save his beloved South, John Wilkes Booth tries to kidnap Lincoln from Ford's Theater only to find an assassin already there. The following week finds him trying to escape into Virginia with his companion as he tries to figure out what went wrong. Meanwhile a reporter in the capital is also trying to make sense of the ever-changing story put out by Secretary Stanton.
