Swallowed Up in Victory is a narrative of the last year of the American Civil War. It follows the action surrounding the first attacks on Petersburg through the surrender at Appomattox. Swallowed Up in Victory traces the history of the siege through letters and journal entries of a group of fictitious participants. Their accounts highlight both the despair and triumph that the struggle over Petersburg provided in abundance, as well as the self-deprecating humor that managed to sustain both sides through the worst of the conflict.
