Confederate Government's Last Days: Series End

This series begins with Confederate President Jefferson Davis in church getting handed a note.  The note was from Robert E. Lee.  It said that the army could no longer defend the capital and was retreating.  He and his government evacuated Richmond and headed south.

The series ends with Jefferson Davis, virtually alone, being surrounded by Federal cavalry and captured.  It is written by Jefferson Davis himself.

Collapse of Remaining Confederate Armies

Both major armies, that commanded by Robert E. Lee and that by Joseph Johnston, have surrendered.  In the last weeks of May, the armies in Alabama and Mississippi and the Trans-Mississippi Departments surrendered.  During these calamities, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy, his administration now reduced to a last remnant of escorts, left Washington, Georgia, hoping to reach whatever forces remained west of the Mississippi River.

Champlain Attacks Iroquois

If you're going to Pearl Harbor someone, finish the job. The year is 1610. Francis Parkman wrote, "Judged by the standard of Indian war, a heavy blow had been struck on the common enemy. Here were hundreds of assembled warriors; yet none thought of following up their success. Elated with unexpected fortune, they danced and sang; then loaded their canoes, hung their scalps on poles, broke up their camps, and set out triumphant for their homes."

The Iroquois were to dog French Canada for the next century and a half and to the Plain of Abraham.

Japan's Very First Emperor

Jimmu lived around 660 BC.  This was before Japanese civilization could write so his origins and reign are half buried in legends.  Like King David of Israel, he is alleged to have composed poems or songs (psalms).

Lee Harvey Oswald Arrested for Kennedy Murder

At first he told the police that had nothing to do with it.  He said he was eating lunch at the time of the shooting.  He also denied the murder of Police Officer Tibbit.  As the policeman had crossed Harvey's path in the aftermath of the murder, he had been gunned down, too.

For more information on the Kennedy Assassination here is an installment from The Warren Report by Chief Justice Earl Warren, future President Gerald Ford, and other senior statesmen:
