A sombre anniversary

On April 9, 1865, General Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to General Grant. Nearly all of the fighting and killing in the American Civil War was done.

I have ancestors who fought—and one who died—in the Civil War. I hope all of them, and their brothers in arms, rest in peace.

Requiescat in pace.
