Meador, Clifton: Victory defeat
During President Obama’s reelection campaign, I’d been thinking a lot about victory and defeat—
and also looking at old photographs concerning the slave-holders’ rebellion of the 1860s.
The covers are from a Washington, DC newspaper of April 10, 1865, announcing General
Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. The images are from Matthew Brady’s photographs of Lee taken
10 days later.
