S. C. Gwynne, bestselling author of Empire of the Summer Moon and Rebel Yell, presents an epic account of the dramatic conclusion of the Civil War, from the moment Ulysses S. Grant arrives to take command of all Union armies in March 1864 to the surrender of Robert E. Lee at Appomattox a year later. Gwynne breathes new life into the epic battle between Lee and Grant; the advent of 180,000 black soldiers in the Union army; the dramatic final events of the war, and more.
