From the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning history A Stillness at Appomattox, an electrifying account of the end of the Civil War—Grant and Lee's final maneuvers as four years of internecine conflict inched to a close.
"The end of the war was like the beginning, with the army marching down the open road under the spring sky." Here is the triumphant close of Bruce Catton's history of the Army of the Potomac, the major Union army that fought and ultimately won the war. In the spring of 1865, the war was in its endgame, as Grant broke through the defenses at Petersburg and chased Lee's army for the final clash. Meanwhile, Lee had one final option open to him: escape to North Carolina and join up with General Joe Johnston or otherwise accept defeat. Here are the war's final days and minutes, the race to the finish of America's bloodiest years.
