This richly textured tapestry is made complete by the words of men and women who actually witnessed the events.

The last citadel : Petersburg, Virginia, June 1864-April 1865 by Noah Andre Trudeau( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 1,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Citadel is the only full-length treatment of the most extensive military operation of the Civil War -- the siege of Petersburg, Virginia, which by its bloody end had added more than 70,000 casualties to the war's total. Because it lay astride five major railroad lines that supplied Richmond, the Confederate capital, Petersburg was key to the war effort in the East. With the same dogged determination that had seen him through the Overland campaign, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant fixed his sights on the capture of the city. His Confederate counterpart Gen. Robert E. Lee, was equally determined that Petersburg would not fall. Noah Andre Trudeau's compelling account of the siege of Petersburg is told largely through the words of the men and women who were there, including officers, common soldiers, and the town's citizens. What emerges is an epic story rich in human incident and adventure. - Back cover
Out of the storm : the end of the Civil War, April-June 1865 by Noah Andre Trudeau( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Out of the Storm is a moving and dramatic account of the final months of the American Civil War. In the spring of 1865, after four years of devastating conflict, the North and South had their final reckoning. For the men and women whose fierce determination to preserve their way of life had sustained the Confederacy, it was a time to confront the bitter truth that all was lost. For Abraham Lincoln, standing at the threshold of a long-awaited triumph, it was both a time to reconcile the cost of what had been won and a time to move forward, to rebuild the nation and heal its grievous wounds. Although most Civil War histories close with Lee's surrender at Appomattox, it took three more months to end this bloodiest of all American wars. These final months of struggle and change are explored in vivid detail in Out of the Storm. There are the final military campaigns of the war: Grant's pursuit of Lee; Sherman's death embrace with Johnston's army in North Carolina; and Wilson's relentless sweep through central Alabama and Georgia. There are compelling accounts of the tragic sinking of the steamboat Sultana (America's worst maritime disaster); the tremendous munitions explosion that leveled a large section of Mobile; the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the hunt for his killer; and the pursuit and capture of Jefferson Davis. Offering viewpoints of both North and South, Noah Andre Trudeau follows the domino-like collapse of the Confederacy, presenting poignant stories of individual courage and honor amid irrevocable chaos and change. This defining moment in the history of the United States has received surprisingly little study; it was a period of transition from a society at war with itself to a restored peace. Drawing upon an impressive body of personal reminiscences, memoirs, and previously unpublished material, Out of the Storm is a rich and memorable portrait of the last months of conflict. With this third volume, Trudeau completes his celebrated Civil War trilogy. Bloody Roads South, which won the prestigious Fletcher Pratt Award, recounted the fierce battle of Grant and Lee in Virginia in the spring of 1864. The Last Citadel was the first full-length treatment of the siege of Petersburg, Virginia. Now, Out of the Storm presents the final act of this profound epic in our history

Gettysburg : [a testing of courage] by Noah Andre Trudeau( Recording )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's Civil War raged for more than four years, the three days of fighting in the Pennsylvania countryside in July 1863 continue to fascinate, appall, and inspire new generations with their unparalleled saga of sacrifice and courage. No battle was as deadly or dramatic as Gettysburg. More lives were lost there than in any other war fought on American soil. From Chancellorsville, where General Robert E. Lee launched his high-risk campaign into the North, to the Confederates' last daring and ultimately doomed act, forever known as Pickett's Charge, the battle of Gettysburg gave the Union army a victory that turned back the boldest and perhaps greatest chance for a Southern nation. The last three decades have seen scores of remarkable new studies focusing on important elements of this monumental campaign. [In this book, the author] brings the most up-to-date research available to a brilliant, sweeping, and comprehensive history that sheds new light on virtually every aspect of the battle of Gettysburg. Deftly balancing his own narrative style with revealing firsthand accounts, including excerpts from the diaries and letters of the men on both sides of the battlefield, [he also] brings this engrossing human tale to life. He recounts the heightening tension of campaign, the life-or-death decisions made by its commanders, and the struggle endured by thousands of its bravest soldiers. Not forgotten are the stories of the noncombatants, the thousands of civilians whose placid lives were swept into the ferocious cauldron. [The book] conveys all the drama and heroism in what is sure to be the defining account for years to come of this pivotal moment in American history.-Dust jacket
Southern storm : Sherman's march to the sea by Noah Andre Trudeau( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Award-winning Civil War historian Noah Andre Trudeau has written a gripping, definitive new account that will stand as the last word on General William Tecumseh Sherman's epic march--a targeted strategy aimed to break not only the Confederate army but an entire society as well. With Lincoln's hard-fought reelection victory in hand, Ulysses S. Grant, commander of the Union forces, allowed Sherman to lead the largest and riskiest operation of the war. In rich detail, Trudeau explains why General Sherman's name is still anathema below the Mason-Dixon Line, especially in Georgia, where he is remembered as 'the one who marched to the sea with death and devastation in his wake.' Sherman's swath of destruction spanned more than sixty miles in width and virtually cut the South in two, badly disabling the flow of supplies to the Confederate army. He led more than 60,000 Union troops to blaze a path from Atlanta to Savannah, ordering his men to burn crops, kill livestock, and decimate everything that fed the Rebel war machine. Grant and Sherman's gamble worked, and the march managed to crush a critical part of the Confederacy and increase the pressure on General Lee, who was already under siege in Virginia

March 1865: The United States was at a crossroads and, truth be told, Abraham Lincoln was a sick man. "I am very unwell," he confided to a close acquaintance.

A timely invitation from General U.S. Grant provided the impetus for an escape to City Point, Virginia, a journey from which Abraham Lincoln drew much more than he ever expected.
