9780739447390: Savannah: Or, A Gift for Mr. Lincoln: A Novel [Large Print]

The story takes place between Thanksgiving 1864 and mid-January 1865, and it encompasses the fall of Atlanta (which occurs earlier in September of that same year) and Savannah. The subtitle, A GIFT FOR MR. LINCOLN, is in reference to the famous telegraph sent by General William T. Sherman on December 21, 1864, announcing that Savannah had been captured by the North and was being offered to President Lincoln as a Christmas gift. What is most important in SAVANNAH are not the battles or the soldiers who fought them. It is mostly about the spirit of the South, in particular, the town of Savannah. It is about the people who had survived the Civil War and were now dealing with keeping spirits bright during the relatively new holiday celebrated on the 25th of December.
