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.

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.

Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
This Landmark book is a great way to introduce your children to generals Lee and Grant, and give them an introduction to the history of the Civil War.  This book helps you to look at the war from the eyes of the two generals and make it seem much more real than a history book can do, and show some of the emotions involved in the surrender.  It is written an a fun and engaging way.
