1865 blog Emily Saravia

Well it seems that this Civil War has come to an end and as we all could already see coming a union win!!! i would also like to mention of the great honor it was for me to be standing in the same room as where General Robert E Lee surrendered to General Ulysses  S.Grant in Appomattox Courthouse on April 9th 1865.  But with this courageous war of bravery also came a dreadful time as in Lincoln being assassinated by none other than actor John Wilkes Booth while Lincoln attended the play "Our American Cousin" with his wife. And as we mourned this country's beloved president John Wilkes Booth was killed on April 26 1865, 12 day after he assassinated Lincoln. On the bright side our county's peace and name has been brought back and we are now back as one! This war has been a tough one, but it was worth it since it was for our dear USA.
