Appomattox

Victory, Defeat, and Freedom at the End of the Civil War

Elizabeth R. Varon

  • Offers an alternative to the dominant, triumphalist view that Lee's surrender effected the reunion of the South and North and thus "saved America" and also an alternative to the somber view that the surrender prefigured the reconciliationist"lost cause" consensus of the late-19th century.
  • Senior, respected military historian.
  • Vivid narrative based on archival sources.
