April 9, 1865

"It would be useless and therefore cruel to provoke the further effusion of blood, and I have arranged to meet with General Grant with a view to surrender..."

I do not have any deep comments to make about the surrender of one of the finest armies in the history of the world. I wish I did, but anything I would say has probably been said before by someone a lot smarter than myself.
