Surratt were hanged; O’Laughlin, Arnold and Mudd were sentenced to be imprisoned for life, and Spangler for six years.] General Sherman asked the operator if he had divulged the contents of the dispatch to anyone; and being answered in the negative, he ordered him to keep it a secret until his return.The contending armies now in the field to maintain the status quo until notice is given by the commanding general of any one to its opponent, and reasonable time – say forty-eight hours – allowed. The Confederate armies now in existence to disbanded and conducted to their several State capitals, there to deposit their arms and public property in the State arsenal; and each officer and man to execute and file an agreement to cease from acts of war, and to abide the action of the State and Federal authority.The number of arms and munitions of war to be reported to the Chief of Ordinance at Washington City, subject to the future action of the Congress of the United States, and, in the meantime, to be used solely to maintain peace and order within the borders of the States respectively.

Sherman, Major-General Commanding Army of the United States in North Carolina J. Johnston, General Commanding Confederate States Army in North Carolina On the 2nd of March, 1865, General R. Lee addressed a letter to General Grant suggesting a meeting between them to arrange “to submit the subjects of controversy between the belligerents to a convention,’ etc.

He said a man who had recently taken the temperance pledge was once invited to take a drink of spirits. Richmond had fallen, and Lee’s army was marching to make a junction with Johnston.He said, ‘No, I can’t do it; I will take a glass of lemonade.’ When the lemonade was prepared, his friend suggested that its flavor would be improved by pouring in a little brandy. The news was received with great joy by the men of Sherman’s army. We had constructed bridges, across the Edisto, Broad, Catawba, Pedee, and Cape Fear rivers, and had destroyed all the railroads to the interior of South Carolina. It stated that the next grand objective was to place his armies north of the Roanoke River, facing west, and in full communication with the Army of the Potomac. We had made the march from Savannah to Goldsboro, a distance of 430 miles, in seven weeks. NORTH OF THE ROANOKE RIVER: A PLAN NEVER IMPLEMENTED DUE TO THE SURRENDER OF GENERAL LEE’S ARMY, APPOMATTOX, 9 April 1865 On April 5th (1865) General Sherman issued a confidential order to the army and corps commanders and the chiefs of the staff departments. SAVANNAH TO GOLDSBORO “From Bentonville [March 22d, 1865] we marched to Goldsboro, and in two or three days were in camp, busily engaged in preparing for another campaign. Each of these commanders was authorized to exercise the powers prescribed by law for a general commanding a separate department or army in the field.] The Tenth and Twenty-third corps had already been constituted an army known as the Army of the Ohio, with Schofield as commander.During the conversation something was said about the disposition to be made of rebel leaders, particularly Mr. Sherman made no secret of the fact that he wished to have Davis escape arrest, get out of the country and thus save our Government all embarrassment as to this case. Lincoln said that, occupying the position he did, he could not say he hoped the leader of the great rebellion, which had brought so much misery upon the land, would escape, but the situation reminded him of an anecdote. The next day brought us news which dispelled this happy vision.
