THE SUltitNDlilt OF LE 1.
'T'lhirty-Seconed Anniversary of th<
Surrender at Appomattox.
At, Appowattx Court House, Va.
32 years ago tho 9th of April, Genera
Grar.t recolved the sword of Rober
E. Leo as a token of the full submis
sion to the arbitrament of arms of t
voterans of the Army of Northern Vir
ginia. Although the 30,000 troop
present with Leo at that time con
stituted lees than a fifth of the organiz
ed Confederate forces in the tiold, theil
surrender was a signal to the soldier3
and peoplo of the South that thelh
cause was lost.
General Lee's retreat from Peters.
burg was delayed the whole day of th
7th of April, 1,465, by the activity o
the troops of the Second Iederal corps
which har-rassed his army along thc
Appomattox route weetward. Dulrilng
the night he put his men in mlotiOr
for their last march to A ppomatto.
Court flouse. le reached it. with the
ad vance about , o'clock inl the even iug
of tho Si, and soon afterward a dash
of Federal cavalry from the south
gave warning that a foree was across
his front, and new plans were necs
sairy. Sheridan was on his front, with
the cavalry divisions of Generals MTer
ritt and Crook. Generals Ord, Griflin
and Wright had three Federal corps
strung along the Lynchburg railroad
south of him, and Humphreys corps
was closing up fromac the east.
Generals Grant and Lac had been in
cosirespondence for 2.1 hours relative
I , tihe surrender. Un the 701h Grant
had written to Lee asking "1 the sur
ri-ender of that portion of the Confed
Srate States army known as the Army
if Northern Virginia." That night,
Grant, received a response from Lee
a-, ing him what, terms he would oler
ont condition of surrender. G rant ro
pi id on the 8th, naming no hard con
ditions and stating that, peace was his
The vpposing arimies were then mov
ing steadily to Appomattox Court
House on parallel routes. At dusnk on
the 8th Lee's seconid note reached
Grant. It stated that he ( Lee) did not
intend to suerrende' the Army of
Northern Virginia, as he did not think
the occasion called for it. Ho in
timated that 1,0 -;:nld treat for peace.
Grant, repli ;d on the morning of the
t1h that ie could not treat for peace.
Peilae ouid only be had by the Soutih
layin;. duwn its arms. IHostilities had
not been suspended, and the several
Federal corps took positions for battle.
Meantime events behind the scenes
hadl hatstenled Lee's decision to go back
to GMrant i' ornal proposal and treat
for the surrender of the Ar'my of
Northern Virginia. On the evening
of the Sth he bad called a council of
corps commanders to consider Grant's
terms, a staUtd in his lotter of the
8th. It was decided not to accept un
less it should be dmllnstr'ated that thu
whole Federal army was up. Sheri
dan, with his cavalry corps and Ord's
infantry command, had outmarched
the Confederates and stood across their
plathway at Appomattox. Lee sent
forward his cavalry, under General
Fitz Iugh Lzie and General John It
Gordon's infantry, to fall upon Sheri
dan at daylight, on the 9th and open a
road toward Lynchburg, and, fai lint
1o (do 6o. to send wordl to Lee, wh
woud go back toward the picket lineb,
with the expectation of meeting Grant
to treat for peace. Gordon and lFiz
