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 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 saw
the absolute folly of continuing
the hopeless struggle and the
further sacrificing of the lives of
these brave but mistaken men,
and surrendered accordingly at
Appamattox on the 9th of April
The magnanimity of the con
querors toward the conquered
partly alleviated the sting of de
feat. When the Union Army
marched into Richmond they
found that the city was in flames
and Negro soldiers from the Un
ion army soon extinguished the
fire and stopped, the plunder be
gun by their masters. A similar
attempt had been made to burn
Charleston and Columbia, and
was partly successful. The white
people of the South -the ruling
class -proud, arrogant, self as
sertive,-though their leader,
John C. Calhoun, had attempted
more than three quarters of a
century ago to bring about se
cession and rebellion; but tnc
lynx-eyed man with the iron hand
was watching him ready to strike
him down. In that memorable
debate, called the battle of the
giants, South Carolina and Mas
sachusetts had crossed swords ir
the greatest forensic duel fou ghi
on American soil. With rhetori
cal brilliancy and power, Haync
the champion of the Southern
white people, had for two days
controlled the floor of the Unitec
States Senate; and with fluenl
and melodious elocution, with in
solent assurance, and plausiable
sophistry, backed by a band ol
bold and vindictive followers cor
founded almost every hearer

Webster, like the war horse spo

captains and the shouting, aros
and addressed the Senate. "1
deep and thrilling Cadence a
waves upon the shore of the fa
resounding sea," his swarthy
countenance lighted up with ex
citement, like Vulcan in his ar
mor y forging thoughts for th
Gods", he soon had his auditor
spellbound. And then with pit
less logic, and eloquence unsui
passed he completely demolishe

ure af his adversary and cap

pite of themselves, by the spell

luence; closing with these mem

on, Now and For ever, One and
Inseparable," Webster had ov
nastered and vanquished Hayne.
Andrew Jackson had humbled
md subdued John C. Calhoun.
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.
