This Astounding Close : The Road to Bennett Place
Even after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox, the Civil War continued to be fought, and surrenders negotiated, on different fronts.
The most notable of these occurred at Bennett Place, near Durham, North Carolina, when Confederate General Joseph E.
Johnston surrendered the Army of Tennessee to Union General William T.
Sherman. In this first full-length examination of the end of the war in North Carolina, Mark L.
Bradley depicts the action as it was experienced by the troops and the civilians in their path.
