Lee and Grant at Appomattox

From a Pulitzer Prize winning author comes the story of an unforgettable moment in American history: the historic meeting between General Robert E. Lee and General Ulysses S. Grant that ended the Civil War. MacKinlay Kantor captures all the emotions and the details of those few days: the aristocratic Lee’s feeling of resignation; Grant’s crippling headaches; and Lee’s request – which Grant generously allowed – to permit his soldiers to keep their horses so they could plant crops for food. You will never look at the historic ending to the Civil War the same way again as this moment in history is captured through Kantor’s stirring retelling.

Note: On the final page of the text, an oath is uttered that you may wish to white out.
