Witness to Appomattox

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Richard Wheeler

Narrated By: Joe Barrett

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: November 2011

Duration: 8 hours 9 minutes

Summary:

Noted Civil War historian Richard Wheeler brings this narrative to life with haunting images of the final days of the Civil War: President Lincoln walking through the streets of Richmond, drawing an admiring crowd of blacks; Confederate and Union troops gathering in the fields around Appomattox Court House, mingling with former foes, experiencing disbelief, bitterness, relief.

Drawing from numerous eyewitness descriptions, Wheeler effectively recreates a moment of the Civil War that is perhaps unequalled for sheer emotion. This account is as much a tribute to Confederate courage as it is a record of the final triumph of the Union cause.

"Goes below the surface facts...to get at the stories of the lives and deaths, the struggles, triumphs, sorrows, and joys of real people."-Chicago Tribune
