The 150th Anniversary Of Robert E. Lee's Surrender At Appomattox Court House

It is April 9, 2015 and the American Civil War Sesquicentennial brings us to this point. On this day, in the year 1865, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House. It was the first time that Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee were in mutual presence since the Mexican-American War of the 1840s. A House Divided came together once again 150 years ago today.
