Today we have a graphic novel presentation of the assassination of President Lincoln on this 150th anniversary of his death. See it here. It shows Lincoln's assassination and the years of racial violence and guerrilla warfare in the South that followed formal surrender in April 1865.
I thing I find very striking about these anniversaries is that it brings home palpable how rapidly Lincoln's assassination came after the nominal end of the war. We remembered the anniversary of Appomattox last week and now we're on to this. It came that quickly. Take a look.
