Appomattox Courthouse. Account of the surrender of the Confederate States Army, April 9, 1865. By Colonel Herman H. Perry. Interesting and Hitherto unpublished particulars. [From the Atlanta, Georgia, Constitution November, 1892.] The story of General Lee's surrender must ever have a sad interest for those who admire the brave. While much has been written about that event, still there is lacking that inside information of the incidents which led up to it. A most interesting paper, read before the Confederate Veteran's Association, of Atlanta, spreads much light on the subject. It is from the pen of Colonel Herman H. Perry, now of Waynesboro, Georgia, who was assistant adjutant-general on the staff of General Sorrell. Colonel Perry was himself the officer who received from the hands of General Grant's messenger the written demand upon General Lee that he should surrender. The letter produced. The letter of Colonel Perry is addressed to Hon. Robert L. Rodg

ricans, 53,500; English, 45,500; other foreigners, 74,900; total, 494,900. It will be seen that our estimate of 144,586 was really far below the actual facts. Thus it will be seen that the Federals had an army fully as large or larger than the entire Confederate enlistments without drawing a man from the Northern or non-slaveholding States. The Federal army in its report for May 1, 1865, had present for duty 1,000,516, while it had present equipped 602,598. The Confederates on April 9, 1865, had 174,223 who were paroled, which added to their prisoners then in Federal prisons, 98,802, made an army of 272,025. Thus it stood at the time of the surrender— Federals, 1,000,56, and Confederates, 272,025. That it may not appear that we have taken a one-sided view of the number of Federals to overcome a given number of Confederates, we append the conclusions, written many years after the war, by a brave and distinguished Federal General—Don Carlos Buell—copied from his article, <
