    Richard Yates (Janu - Novem ) was the 13th Governor of Illinois during the American Civil War and has been considered the greatest war governor during that period. When the war began Gov.

He also represented Illinois in the United States House of Representatives, and as a U.S. Senator, Revolutionary Road, Richard Yates. In the hopeful s, Frank and April Wheeler appear to be a model couple: bright, beautiful, talented, with two young children and a starter home in the suburbs. Perhaps they married too young and started a family too early. Maybe Frank’s job is dull. And April never saw herself as a housewife.
