Description

Noted Civil War historian Richard Wheeler brings this narrative to life with haunting images of the final days of the Civil War: President Lincoln walking through the streets of Richmond, drawing an admiring crowd of blacks; Confederate and Union troops gathering in the fields around Appomattox Court House, mingling with former foes, experiencing disbelief, bitterness, relief. By using numerous eyewitness descriptions, Wheeler effectively recreates a moment of the Civil War which is perhaps unequalled for sheer emotion. This account is as much a tribute to Confederate courage as it is a record of the final triumph of the Union cause
