Robert E. Lee Surrenders the Confederacy
to Ulysses S. Grant
signing this form, Robert E. Lee and six of his
staff officers became paroled prisoners of war and pledged not to take up arms
against the United States. The surrender formalities lasted 4 days. On April 9,
1865, Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E.
Lee met in the parlor of a house in Appomattox Court House, Virginia, to discuss
the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia. The terms were generous: the men
of Lee's army could return home in safety if they pledged to end the fighting
and deliver their arms to the Union Army. On April 12, 1865, in a quiet but
emotional ceremony, the infantry of Lee's army surrendered their arms, folded
their battle flags, and received their parole papers, which guaranteed them safe
passage home." -- Form and Text Courtesy of the
Order No. 9, the Confederate surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia

HdQrs Army of No Va
10th April 1865
After four years of arduous service, marked by unsurpassed courage and
fortitude, the Army of Northern Virginia has been compelled to yield to
overwhelming numbers and resources.
I need not tell the brave survivors of so many hard fought battles who have
remained steadfast to the last, that I have consented to this result from no
distrust of them, But feeling that valor and devotion could accomplish nothing
that could compensate for the loss that would have attended the continuance of
the contest, I determined to avoid the useless sacrifice of those whose past
services have endeared them to their countrymen.
By the terms of the agreement, Officers and men can return to their homes and
remain until exchanged. You will take with you the satisfaction that proceeds
from the consciousness of duty faithfully performed and I earnestly pray that a
merciful God will extend to you His blessing and protection.
With an unceasing admiration of your constancy and devotion to your country,
and a grateful remembrance of your kind and generous consideration of myself, I
bid you all an affectionate farewell.
R E Lee
