Tues Oct 12, 7:00 PM ET. “Ends of War: The Unfinished Fight of Lee’s Army after Appomattox.”
Please join the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech for a free online lecture and discussion with Dr. Caroline Janney (University of Virginia), about Dr. Janney’s new book. In this dramatic new history of the weeks and months after Appomattox, Janney reveals that Lee’s surrender to Grant was less an ending than the start of a period marked by military and political uncertainty, legal and logistical confusion, and continued outbursts of violence. Following the story of Confederate soldiers, Union officers, and both white and Black civilians, she explores the messy birth narrative of the Lost Cause. Click here for free zoom registration.
