Surrender of General Lee Print
Marvelous rendering of the pivotal historical moment when brother stopped fighting brother. This famous pen and ink etching published by Joseph Hoover of Philadelphia depicts that grim but exhilarating day of Jan. 23, 1865, when General Robert E. Lee laid down his sword to General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox, bringing the Civil War to a merciful end. History buffs will check every detail of this magnificent print for clues about these two American warriors and this climactic moment. Reading "The Surrender of General Lee And His Entire Army To U. S. Grant" at the bottom, the print is made even more fascinating by its stark tones of black and white, intensifying the drama and tempering the joy of victory with the awful toll of war. Both Lee and Grant are grim-faced as they sit atop their horses and confer just before Lee surrenders his entire army to the man who would later go on to become the nation’s 18th president. Measures 26 x 32" and NRMT w/ little discoloring and preserved under glass.
