Michael D'Amico was born in Youngstown, OH. In 1961 he joined the Washington D.C. Fire Department, retiring as an officer in the Fire Fighting Division in 1980.
During those years, he read Lincoln's first inaugural address and was profoundly affected by the President's steadfast determination to honor the Presidential oath that he had taken to "preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution, and thereby, to preserve the Union.
Michael began a fourteen year search for the reasons why Lincoln was assassinated, how it was accomplished, and how this tragedy affected America, drawing on records from the Library of Congress, the shelves of used book stores and many other libraries.
He eventually collected over sixty engaging and fascinating sources; historical information about the actions of individuals and potentially mortal occurrences that culminated in Lincoln's death, the trial and fate of the conspirators and the sorrow of our nation.
Hence, the research, editing and publishing of "The True History of Lincoln's Assassination" became his primary quest and resulted in this account.
The author and his family moved to Fort Collins, CO in 1980.
