Ends of War: The Unfinished Fight of Lee’s Army after Appomattox
Author Caroline E Janney, on her book, Ends of War: The Unfinished Fight of Lee’s Army after Appomattox, which takes on the dramatic new history of the weeks and months after Appomattox, revealing that Lee’s surrender was less an ending than the start of an interregnum marked by military and political uncertainty, legal and logistical confusion, and continued outbursts of violence. Janney takes readers from the deliberations of government and military authorities to the ground-level experiences of common soldiers. Ultimately, what unfolds is the messy birth narrative of the Lost Cause, laying the groundwork for the defiant resilience of rebellion in the years that followed.
