Example text

For ninety years America vainly struggled to produce such a towering figure of myth. Neither Jackson nor Jefferson made it. ” Besides, Lewis notes, all those heroes lived too long, and by no stretch of the imagination could their passing be construed as mysterious, miraculous, or sacrificial. All that changed in April of 1865: It was not until Lincoln had been assassinated and his body seen firsthand by 1,500,000 people, that something truly miraculous took place. As they saw him stretched to his giant’s length in the coffin, they remembered with awe how cool and strong he had seemed through those four years of terror, now miraculously ended.

At about this time, General Robert E. Lee, in command of the army of the South, concluded that the Confederacy’s best opportunity to win the war would be to cross the border and attack the North. So this is what he did, and thus began the most desperate hour in the war. , to make a Confederate victory in the war seem possible and even likely. General McClellan, although having almost twice as many men as Lee, managed only a standoff in this battle. He was content merely to see Lee retreat back across the border into Confederate lands.

On the frontier, baths were rare. One might take a bath or two during the summer months and none at all during the rest of the year.
