On the knoll before you, Lee and Grant held the second of their two meetings at Appomattox Court House. They met here on the morning of April 10. Grant hoped to enlist Lee's support in urging the surrender of other Confederate armies, and Lee was intent on working out the final details of surrender.

Lee refused Grant's request to exert his influence with other armies. But the two officers did resolve details of the surrender. Grant agreed to provide the Confederates with individual parole passes to safeguard their journey home. He would also allow surrendered soldiers to pass free on all government transportation on their way home.

During their two meetings at Appomattox, not a harsh word passed between Lee and Grant. Wrote one Confederate: "General Grant and his men treated us nobly, more nobly than was ever a conquered army treated before of since." The process of reconciliation had already begun.
