The Greatest War in our Country's History Must End
Who were the two men who came together and ended the fighting between the North and the South?
Pulitzer Prize-winning author MacKinlay Kantor leads us from the bloody battlefields of the American Civil War to a small farmhouse in the Virginia countryside. There, two great generals would come together and begin the process of healing for a nation weary of war and killing.
There couldn't be two men more different than the proper and dignified Robert E. Lee, with his immaculate uniform and his proud horse, Traveller, and the mud-spattered and rumpled Ulysses S. Grant, who looked like a common foot soldier. But their shared belief in peace and reconciliation helped begin a process that would bring the fractured country together. By focusing on the end of the war, Kantor gives us a minute-by-minute account of the truce and surrender along with a keen understanding of the men who prevented further casualties.
About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.
Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.
