Share this story with friends

On April 9, 1865, at the Appomattox County Court House, Virginia, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his 28,000 troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant, effectively ending the American Civil War. So much has been said about this legendary General in between the years of 1861 to 1865, yet very little is known about this major American historical figure after his surrender? Here to tell the story is Gettysburg National Military Park Ranger, Matt Atkinson.
