Grant, Lee, Appomattox
April 9, 1865-April9, 1914
Forty-nine years ago day be
fore yesterday, Lee the Confed
erate Chieftain, surrendered at
Appomattox Court Hous i to
Grant, the Captain of the Union
army, and the greatest war of
modern times was ended.
Gathering about him his best
troops and most trusted offi
cers, Lee had contested every
inch of ground in his efforts to
protect the fall of Richmond and
the dismemberment of the south
ern Confederacy. His skirmish
es, attacks and retreats had been
executed with consumatec skill;
but opposed by superior numbers
and with God Almighty against
him, with his army half starved,
half clad and disintegrating,
with the Southern Confederacy
subiugated in the Southerner's
heart and the president of the
Confederacy, fleeing in dis
guise from place to place, he sav*
the absolute folly of continuing
the hopeless struggle and th?
further sacrificing of the lives oj
these brave but mistaken men,
and surrendered accordingly a

The magnanimity of the con
querors toward the eonquere(
partly alleviated the sting of de
feat. When the Union Arm:
marched into Richmond the:
found that the city was in flame;
and Negro soldiers from the Un
ion army soon extinguished th
fire and stopped, the plunder be
gun by their masters. A simila
attempt had been made to buri
Charleston and Columbia, an<
was partly successful. The whit
people of the South-the rulinj
class -proud, arrogant, self as
serti ve,-though their leader
John C. Calhoun, had attempter
more than three quarters of
century ago to bring about se
cession and rebellion; but tn
lynx-eyed man with the iron han
was watching him ready to strik
him down. In that memora bl
debate, called the battle of th
giants, South Carolina and Mai
sachusetts had crossed swords i
the greatest forensic duel fougri
on American soil. With rhetor
cal brilliancy and power, Hayn
the champion of the Souther
white people, had for two day
controlled the floor of the Unite
States Senate; and with fluer
and melodious elocution, with ir
soient assurance, and plausiabl
sophistry, backed by a band c
bold and vindictive followers co
founded almost every hearei

But the leprosy of slavery was
in the blood of the South. Hu
man slavery "the sum of all vil
lanies," caused the war. When
Lee surrendered, the black south
was freed,, the white south whip
ped but not conquered. What it
lost a half century ago in a con
test with bullets it has partly re
gained in a contest with ballots.
