The Surrender: Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee
United No More! Stories of the Civil War
This is a well researched and nicely told story about the events that transpired in the days after April 7, 1865, when Ulysses S. Grant sent Robert E. Lee a letter asking for his surrender. The story captures both the incredible fatigue of both great generals and the moving civility with which they treated each other.
