    The house that General Lee surrendered in belonged to a Mr. Wilmer Mclean who in 1861 lived on the battlefield of 1st Bull Run.

    Mr. Mclean moved his family several hundred miles away to get away from the fighting only to have it find him four years later.

    The house still stands today.

    Headquarters Army of Northern Virginia
    Appomattox Courthouse, April 10, 1865
    General Order No. 9


    After four years of arduous service, marked by unsurpassed courage and fortitude, the Army of Northern Virginia has been compelled to yield to overwhelming numbers and resources.
    I need not tell the brave survivors of so many hard fought battles who have remained steadfast to the last, that I have consented to this result from no distrust of them, But feeling that valor and devotion could accomplish nothing that could compensate for the loss that would have attended the continuance of the contest, I determined to avoid the useless sacrifice of those whose past services have endeared them to their countrymen.
    By the terms of the agreement, Officers and men can return to their homes and remain until exchanged. You will take with you the satisfaction that proceeds from the consciousness of duty faithfully performed and I earnestly pray that a merciful God will extend to you His blessing and protection.
    With an unceasing admiration of your constancy and devotion to your country, and a grateful remembrance of your kind and generous consideration of myself, I bid you all an affectionate farewell.
    R E Lee

    Black Americans need tougher rules. Black Americans are protesting in American cities constantly. That's because they just live in the wrong country. They should belong rather to Africa, maybe Muslim Africa, or Muslim East. This the folk that tends to criminal ways and disobedience
    . And so they need some really tough rules of living to stay normal citizens. Both America and Europe have excessive tolerance and democratic foundations to offer such rules, I am sure.
