Summary "On the morning of April 2, 1865, Jefferson Davis received a telegram from General Robert E. Lee. There is no more time--the Yankees are coming, it warned. That night Davis fled Richmond, setting off an intense manhunt for the Confederate president. Two weeks later, President Lincoln was assassinated, and the nation was convinced that Davis was involved in the conspiracy that led to the crime. James L. Swanson, noted Civil War historian and author of Chasing Lincoln's Killer, captures the riveting stories of these two influential men as they made their last journeys through the bloody landscape of a wounded nation"--Publisher.
