and the Surrenders of the Confederacy

In A Free Live Video Presentation

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.

Robert M. Dunkerly is an historian, award-winning author, and speaker who is actively involved in historic preservation and research. He works as a park ranger at Richmond National Battlefield Park. Among his several books are several in the Emerging Civil War Series: To the Bitter End: Appomattox, Bennett Place, and the Surrenders of the Confederacy and No Turning Back: A Guide to the 1864 Overland Campaign. Most recently, he co-authored with Doug Crenshaw Embattled Capital: A Guide to Richmond During the Civil War, published by Savas Beatie in January 2021. Mr. Dunkerly blogs regularly for Emerging Civil War (www.emergingcivilwar.com).
