Episode Summary

The Path to Peace
Editor Horace Greeley's heroic defense of the defeated Jefferson Davis is dramatized. Greeley, as editor of the New York Tribune had been a leader in the fight against the Confederacy, but when Jefferson Davis was jailed Greeley crusaded for his release. He raised Davis' bail single-handedly and stuck by him even when the Tribune stockholders demanded that Davis be returned to jail. Even when Davis offered to do so voluntarily, Greeley refused to abandon his battle, both for personal justice for Davis and the fair treatment of the South which would reunite the country.moreless
