APRIL 1865; The Month that Saved America

New York: Harper Collins, 2001. First edition. Hardcover. 6 1/2 x 9 1/2, 462 pgs, section of b&w historical photos. One month in 1865 witnessed the frenzied fall of Richmond, a daring last-ditch Southern plan for guerrilla warfare, Lee's harrowing retreat, and then, Appomattox. It saw Lincoln's assassination just five days later and a near-successful plot to decapitate the Union government, followed by chaos and coup fears in the North, collapsed negotiations and continued bloodshed in the South, and finally, national reconciliation.
