9780156007481: An Honorable Defeat: The Last Days of the Confederate Government

February 1865: The end is clearly in sight for the Confederate government...An Honorable Defeat is the story of the surrender of the South and the assassination of Lincoln by Southern partisans. It is also the story of two men: Jefferson Davis, autocratic president of the Confederate States, who vowed never to surrender whatever the cost; and Gen. John Breckinridge, Secretary of War, who hoped pragmatism would save his shattered land. Noted historian, William Davis traces the astounding flight of these men, and the entire Confederate cabinet from Richmond, Virginia, to a dingy room in a Havana hotel...
