Description
The author of Terrible Swift Sword and Jefferson's War, Joseph Wheelan here explores the dramatic developments that unfolded early in 1865, from the battles ending the Petersburg siege and forcing Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox to William T. Sherman's destruction of South Carolina's capital, from Jefferson Davis's desperate bids to save the Confederacy to the assassination of Lincoln, and the intensive manhunt for his killer. Wheelan's fast-paced narrative weaves disparate events into a gripping account of powerful armies, civil and military leaders, and ordinary people of all kinds, struggling to survive in the wreckage of the war.

"First-rate study of the often overlooked closing months of the Civil War.... Wheelan has combed entire libraries to make this thoroughly readable, lucid survey. Well-practiced buffs will welcome the book, but novices can approach it without much background knowledge, too."—Kirkus Reviews
