Title: A Stillness at Appomattox

Author: Bruce Caton

Price: $3.00








The sunlight gleamed brightly off the metal and die flags. Once again, for a last haunting moment, the way men make war looked grand and caught at the throat —

Then Sheridan's bugles sounded, the clear notes slanting across the silent field. All of his brigades wheeled and swung into line, every saber raised high. In another min­ute infantry and cavalry would drive in on the slim Con­federate lines and crumple them and destroy them.

Out from the Rebel lines came a lone rider, a young officer in a gray uniform, galloping madly, a staff in his hand, with a white flag fluttering from the end of it. He rode up to Chamberlain's lines. The firing stopped, and the Fed­erals saw the Southerners wheeling their guns back and stacking their muskets....

This was the Stillness at Appomattox — the end of the butchery that was the War Between the States.
