CivilWarTalk Presents:

Robert M. Dunkerly, author of: To the Bitter End: Appomattox, Bennett Place and the Surrenders of the Confederacy

Myths and misconceptions abound about those last days of the Confederacy. There would be no single surrender or treaty that brought the war to an end. Rather, the Confederacy collapsed, its government on the run, its cities occupied, its armies surrendering piecemeal. Offering a fresh look at the various surrenders that ended the war, To the Bitter End: Appomattox, Bennett Place, and the Surrenders of the Confederacy by Robert M. Dunkerly brings to light little-known facts and covers often-overlooked events. Each surrender—starting at Appomattox and continuing through Greensboro, Citronelle, and the Trans Mississippi—unfolded on its own course. As the surrenders unfolded, daunting questions remained. Appomattox was just the beginning.

See Robert M. Dunkerly, author of To the Bitter End: Appomattox, Bennett Place and the Surrenders of the Confederacy in a Free Live Video Presentation on Zoom!
