The Last Days of the Other Great Confederate Army

In this interesting work, Dunkerly, a ranger at the Richmond National Battlefield Park, reminds us that even after Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox Confederate forces still remained in the field, most notably to Army of Tennessee, under Joseph Johnston. Although recently defeated by Sherman’s armies at Bentonville (March 19-21, 1865) and beset by desertion and shortages of food and munitions, Johnston’s army was still a coherent fighting force when it surrendered on April 26, 1865.
