f Johnston's surrender to Sherman. Grant left him in command; and, from the hour when he directed him to end the truce, and demand the surrender of Johnston's army, he was untrameled by any order from his superior. Johnston did not even know that Grant was at the Headquarters of the Union army, when, on the 25th, he replied to Sherman's note, and asked for another conference at the place where they met before. Johnston's request was granted. The two commanders met at the house of James Bennett, near Durham's Station, in Orange County, North Carolina, on the 26th of April, 1865, and then agreed upon terms of capitulation precisely the same as those at Appomattox Court-House, it being stipulated that all arms and public property of the Confederates should be deposited at Greensboroa.

The national government instantly rejected it, and General Grant was sent to Raleigh to declare that rejection, which he did April 24, and proclaimed that the truce would end in forty-eight hours. This notification was accompanied by a demand for the surrender of Johnston's army, on the terms granted to Lee. The capitulation was agreed upon at the house of James Bennett, near Durham's Station, April 26. About 25,000 troops were surrendered.
