"Induced by a dispatch from General Grant, I join you at Fort Monroe as soon as I can come."
Lincoln to Secretary Seward, 9:00 am, February 2, 1865 (sent in cipher).

February 2, 1865: President Abraham Lincoln arrived at the Annapolis & Elkridge Railroad depot near this site. He walked through town to the steamer Thomas Collyer at the Naval Academy wharf, accompanied only by his valet Charles Forbes, post quartermaster Capt. Gardner Blodgett, and presidential guard Andrew Smith. Lincoln was enroute to the Hampton Roads Conference at Fort Monroe, Va, having decided only that morning to join Confederate peace commissioners meeting there with Secretary of State William Seward. Ice blocked the normal Potomac River route.

February 4, 1865: Lincoln and Seward returned to Annapolis aboard the River Queen. A special train met the party at the wharf just after 7:00 AM and returned to Washington, ending Lincoln's only visits to Annapolis.
