We passed that night on the barge of the United States Sanitary Commission, at City Point, and the next morning went down to Fortress Monroe, bearing an order from General Butler for a tug to take us to Norfolk. We spent New Year's day in that city, and then went homeward by way of Chesapeake Bay, Baltimore and Philadelphia. Soon after the news of the evacuation of Richmond reached us, early in April, 1865. we started for that city, and were in Baltimore on the night when the President was murdered. There we were detained until Sunday afternoon, April. 16. in consequence of an order from the Government, prohibiting all public conveyances entering into or departing from Baltimore, because search was a-making for t

ary Academy at West Point, on the Hudson. There was joy throughout the entire Republic, because of the evident swift coming of Peace. The loyal people felt that a score of golden medals, such as Congress had awarded to General Grant, See page 172. The engraving of that medal, here given, is about one-third less, in size, than the original.

He knew that Grant, for the sake of celerity in pursuit, would break up his army in detachments; and Lee intended, with a bountifully supplied force kept well in hand, to fall upon these fragmenal-in-chief, at the front, receiving dispatches from him and transmitting them instantly to the Secretary of War, whence they were diffused over the country, by the telegraph. On the day after Richmond was evacuated, he went up to that city April 4, 1865. in Admiral Porter's flag-ship, the Malvern.
