Noted historian Robert Hendrickson has written more than
forty books and has earned critical acclaim for his meticulous historical
research and highly readable style. In The
Road to Appomattox, by weaving together passages from diaries, military
reports, and newspapers, Hendrickson creates a vivid, firsthand account of the
final year of the Civil War.
Putting down their arms and flags, Lee’s Confederate troops
made a formal surrender at Appomattox on April 12, 1865. Leading up to that day,
however, was a wide path of bloody battles that ultimately claimed the lives of
one out of every fifty Americans. Bringing the Civil War to an end required
extraordinary logic from Generals Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Lee, and others.
Join Robert Hendrickson as he traces the military strategies
and engagements that preceded that grey morning at Appomattox. As you walk
beside both Northern and Southern fighting men and officers, their voices will
