About
Two Civil War leaders. Two dramatic endings.

This is the riveting true story of the fallen leaders of the North and South as they make their final journeys through the bloody landscape of our wounded nation. Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, is on his way to prison and Abraham Lincoln, president of the United States, is on his way to the grave. . . .

On the morning of April 2, 1865, Davis was warned that Union soldiers were coming for him. By nightfall he was on the run, setting off one of the country's most intense manhunts ever.

Two weeks later, President Lincoln was assassinated, and the nation was convinced that Davis was involved. Lincoln's murder, autopsy, and funeral transfixed a country still reeling from war. And for a final farewell, his coffin was brought from the White House to a special train that carried him home to Springfield, Illinois. Along the way, millions of people got to see their hero one last time before he was laid to rest. It was the most magnificent funeral pageant in American history.
