“Stacking of Arms: The Confederate Surrender Ceremonies”

General Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to Lieutenant General U.S. Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. The terms Grant extended served as a template for negotiations with the various Confederate forces continuing to offer resistance. After four years of fighting, the American Civil War – unlike similar conflicts in other nations – ended with the victor focusing on reunification instead of annihilation. Civil War historian Michael K. Shaffer will discuss the various surrender ceremonies at war’s end.
