The End and the Beginning
April 9, 1865
Grant and Lee at Appomattox Court House
Talked about the War they had fought on the same
side-Mexican War
`
Grant let Lee’s officers keep swords (honor)
Grant let the Confederate soldiers keep their horses if
they were theirs so they could use in farming.
Seems interesting given Grant’s reputation.
