Books Info:

Our One Common Country free pdf Our One Common Country explores the most critical meeting of the Civil War. Overlooked by many historians, the Hampton Roads Conference of 1865 was a crucial turning point in the War between the States. In this well written and highly documented book, James B. Conroy describes in fascinating detail the meeting that was meant to end the fighting on peaceful terms. It failed, and the war dragged on for two more bloody, destructive months. Through meticulous research of both primary and secondary sources, Conroy tells the story of the doomed peace negotiations through the characters who lived it. With a fresh first-person narrative, Our One Common Country offers a thrilling and eye-opening look into the efforts to find a peaceful solution. The failure of the Hamptons Roads Conference shaped the course of American history and the future of America's wars to come.
