Description: 1 online resource
Contents: Friends in power. A self-immolating devotion to duty ; Lacking in the quality of leadership ; A problematical character, full of contradictions ; Good and true friends ; The only way to make spaniels civil is to whip them ; Who will he treat with, or how commence the work? ; The wise men are those who would end it ; I do not think I would get back ; As once a friend and still, I hope, not an enemy --
We are but one people. A treachery unworthy of men of honor ; A new channel for the bitter waters ; We are on the eve of an internal revolution ; A determined stand ought to be made for peace ; Is there nothing that will degrade a man? ; You will not assume to definitely consummate anything ; I was never so much disappointed in my life ; With evident indications of high gratification ; There has been nothing we could do for our country --
A suffering and distracted country. It is more dangerous to make peace than to make war ; You are all against me ; Thank God we know it now ; To serve a people in spite of themselves ; It is the province of statesmanship to consider of these things ; With cheerful confidence in the result ; Allow Judge Campbell to see this, but do not make it public ; The rebels are our countrymen again ; I am as one walking in a dream.
Responsibility: James B. Conroy.

Abstract:

"Our One Common Country explores the most critical meeting of the Civil War. Given short shrift or 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 what happened when leaders from both sides came together to try to end the hostilities. The meeting was meant to end the fighting on peaceful terms. It failed, however, 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 and immediate perspective, Our One Common Country offers a thrilling and eye-opening look into the inability of our nation's leaders 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"--
