Lee and Grant at Appomattox (Sterling Point)

by Mackinlay Kantor

Only 1 left


Quick Overview

Some may think that the illustrations from the previous edition of this book are secondary to the text, but keep in mind that this book was written at a time when books for young people, from toddles through teens, were always illustrated. We now live a world where visual communication is overtaking the written word so it seems strange that illustrations are rarely put into new teen books and reprints are having the pictures removed.


From a Pulitzer Prize winner comes the story of an unforgettable moment in American history: the historic meeting between General Robert E. Lee and General Ulysses S. Grant that ended the Civil War. MacKinlay Kantor captures all the emotions and the details of those few days: the aristocratic Lee's feeling of resignation; Grant's crippling headaches; and Lee's request--which Grant generously allowed--to permit his soldiers to keep their horses so they could plant crops for food. Size 0.37" H x 8.3" L x 5.58" W, 124 pages
