Author Explores the Final Days of the Civil War in New Book

When the Civil War was ending, there was a lot going on in the country – battles that were taking place, arguments in Congress, and a plot to assassinate the president.

Author Joseph Wheelan has written about that time in a book called Their Last Full Measure: The Final Days of the Civil War.
