This paper reviews the book "April 1865: The Month that Saved America," by Jay Winik. It describes the way in which the book focuses on just one month in the war, the month when President Lincoln was assassinated and the South surrendered. It also discusses the portraits of the main characters in the war, as described in the book, from Abraham Lincoln to William T. Sherman and Robert E. Lee. It then looks at Winik's view of how the events could have happened differently, with the country unraveling or the government broadly changing as a result.
