• This groundbreaking study chronicles the final battles in Virginia including Appomattox Station and Appomattox Court House in April 1865. It has been completely revised and updated from its earlier work.

This groundbreaking study chronicles the final battles in Virginia including Appomattox Station and Appomattox Court House in April 1865. Author Chris Calkins, who recently retired as Chief of Interpretation at Petersburg National Battlefield, is widely recognized as the war's foremost authority on Appomattox.

No One Wants to be the Last to Die: The Battles of Appomattox, April 8-9, 1865 leads readers westward from the fall of Petersburg and Richmond through the final battles at Dinwiddie Court House, Five Forks, Sutherland Station, Namozine Church, Amelia Springs, High Bridge, Sailor's Creek, Cumberland Church, and finally, Appomattox Station and Appomattox Court House. Calkins, whose knowledge of the sources and the countryside through which this drama unfolds, is unsurpassed, has completely revised and updated this edition of his earlier work published decades ago as part of the H. E. Howard Virginia Battles and Leaders Series. Readers will welcome its return to print.
