    Little fun fact: one of the Brigadier Generals present at the signing of Lee’s surrender was George Armstrong Custer, who also played a huge role in halting confederate advantages in the Battle of Gettysburg. And yes, this same Brigadier General, demoted to Lieutenant Colonel, would meet an embarrassing end in the Battle of Little Big Horn

    It hurts to see that people today want to dishonor Lincoln. I think him and FDR had by far, the most stressful presidencies of all time. Lincoln didn’t have time to mourn the loss of his son, his marriage took a massive blow, and he was trying to hold an entire nation together. And he never lost face. Not once.

    Fun fact: The reason lee and and his army lost picketts charge was because confederate artillery ran short on ammunition, and the confederates had to cross a fence between cemetary hill and seminary ridge, causing numerous deaths.
