1865: Triumph and Tragedy

Wednesday, April 22nd | 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Don McCue, Director of the A.K. Smiley Library

Don McCue

As 1865 dawned both the North and the South were exhausted from four years of sanguinary combat that had cost at least 600,000 lives. Finally, in April, Robert E. Lee was compelled to surrender the main Confederate Army to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox. Having successfully shepherded his nation through the maelstrom of war, President Abraham Lincoln was felled by an assassin's bullet at the moment of victory. Was it part of a larger conspiracy? Lincoln Memorial Shrine Director Don McCue will conclude his sesquicentennial examination of the American Civil War with a presentation focusing on dramatic events of 1865.

This forum is now at capacity.
