Read An Honorable Defeat The Last Days of the Confederate Government

Autocratic president of the Confederate States who vowed never to surrender whatever the cost; and the practical and warm General John C Breckinridge Secretary of War who hoped pragmatism would save the shattered remnants of the land he loved so dearly Noted historian William C Davis traces the astounding flight of these men and the entire Confederate cabinet from Richmon. Interesting and very detailed but unfortunately rather plodding at times Davis did very well illustrating the logistical nightmare of the final weeks of the war and the Confederate cabinet's scramble to hold onto the tiniest shred of hope However the narrative of the various individual escape routes of the cabinet members seemed hard to follow and a bit tedious Altogether this was a worthwhile read for the Civil War scholar but likely not something I would suggest to a casual reader of history
