Surrender at Appomattox First-hand Accounts of Robert E. Lee’s Surrender to Ulysses S. Grant
On the 12th of April, 1865, the Army of Northern Virginia marched to the field in front of Appomattox Court-House, stacked their arms, folded their colors, and walked empty handed to find their distant, blighted homes.
These are detailed and moving first-hand accounts from seven historically prominent witnesses to Robert E. Lee’s surrender of the Army of Nothern Virginia at Appomattox.
Brilliantly narrated in northern and southern accents by a professional actor and gifted voice talent, this unique audiobook vividly brings to life the words and heartfelt sentiments of those who wrote these riveting accounts.

Major-General Wesley Merritt, USA
Major-General John Gibbon, USA
