First words
Having triumphed on the battlefield, the North could not agree on how to treat the defeated South. ("Harvesting the bitter fruits of victory: 1865 - 1877")
For the proud soldiers of the North, one final mission remained in the spring of 1865 before they were mustered out of service and scattered to their distant homes. ("An Unforgettable Last Hurrah", photo essay)
"The war feeling here is like a burning bush with a wet blanket wrapped around it. Looked at from the outside, the fire seems quenched. But just peep under the blanket and there it is, all alive, and eating, eating in."
- John Trowbridge, northern correspondent touring the South in 1866

Senator Benjamin F. Wade of Ohio, long a fervent enemy of slavery and the Confederacy, strode into Suite 68 of Kirkwood House in Washington, D.C., on the sad evening of April 15, 1865, and grasped Andrew Johnson by the hand.
