This Date In History ...

150 years ago is often deemed the "end" of the Civil War and the surrender of Lee's army is basically a sort of de facto conclusion. There were other armies in the field, at least one Confederate victory (minor skirmish in Texas) and trouble with a Confederate raider to come. The surrender of Johnston's army itself was an interesting process, including the general refusing to follow Davis' orders to not surrender. An act of treason?
