The Last Days of the Civil War
The sorrowful and sanguine final days of the American Civil War are the focus of this documentary produced for the A&E Channel. General Robert E. Lee's retreat westward from Petersburg (with the battles of Five Forks and Sailor's Creek and the eventual surrender to General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox) is examined. Abraham Lincoln is extensively profiled, as is Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy.
