In this fast-paced narrative, historian Joseph Wheelan relates the dramatic events of early 1865, from the battles ending the Petersburg siege and forcing Lee's surrender at Appomattox to the destruction of South Carolina's capital, the assassination of Lincoln, and the intensive manhunt for his killer. Meticulously researched, Their Last Full Measure braids the rapidly unfolding events into a compelling account that includes powerful armies; leaders civil and military, flawed and splendid; and ordinary people, black and white, struggling to survive in the war's wreckage.
