The Civil War, for most Americans, began with romantic notions of victory and glory. However, by 1865 the massive casualty totals had touched every home and family; no glory could brighten the nation's darkened spirit. Union forces seemed to have endless supplies of soldiers and equipment, and Gen. Ulysses S. Grant utilized this advantage in a war of attrition. During the first few months of the year, the final battles were fought among two very tired armies. On April 9th, Gen. Robert E. Lee had no further options when he agreed to the terms of surrender Grant offered. They met cordially in the front parlor of the McLean house in the village of Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia. It was indeed the cordial meeting and terms that led to the surrender being called The Gentlemen's Agreement.
Within days of the surrender, the nation suffered the devastation of the first assassination of an American President. President Abraham Lincoln died on the morning of April 15th after being shot by an assassin during the prior evening at Ford's Theatre. By May of 1865 all forces of the Confederate States had ceased to fight and the American Civil War was over.
