Advertising the History Channel Special "April 1865: The Month That Saved America"

"In April, 1865, after four years of bloody internecine conflict, the Civil War finally came to an end. In that one month, Richmond fell, General Lee embarked on his harrowing retreat and the Confederate States surrendered at Appomattox. Only half way through the month of April, President Lincoln was assassinated. But, as author Jay Winik argues in the bestselling book April 1865, these turns of events were anything but inevitable.

Drawing on Winik's acclaimed work and with extensive commentary from the author and other experts, including Gary Gallagher of the University of Virginia, APRIL 1865 examines the extraordinary series of events that changed the course of history in 30 brief days. In no other month of American history did the nation experience such crucial and ultimately challenging events. In the end, April 1865 emerges as not just the tale of the war's denouement, but the story of the making of the modern country."
