Image of item
Large Print Book

Large print edition.

The fourth and final year of the Civil War represents one of history's great turning points. Hymns of the Republic addresses the span from Ulysses S. Grant taking command of all Union armies in March 1864 to the surrender of Robert E. Lee at Appomattox a year later. Gwynne breathes life into the battle between Lee and Grant; the advent of 180,000 black soldiers in the Union army; William Tecumseh Sherman's March to the Sea; the rise of Clara Barton; the 1864 election; the guerrilla war in Missouri; and the dramatic final events of the war, including the murder of Abraham Lincoln.
