  1. Seth Barrow says:

    I know a lot about the eastern theater, but I don’t really know alot about the surrender of Joe Johnston in North Carolina.

  2. David Lady says:

    Galveston. I understand that the soldiers forced the surrender on their generals.

  3. Amanda Warren says:

    I would like to know more about Stand Watie’s surrender. I’ve got the book, but haven’t read it yet.

  4. Stephen Graham says:

    S.D. Lee’s surrender of his department.

  5. I agree with Seth Barrow – I’d like to know more about Johnston’s surrender to Sherman.

    I’d also be interested to know how many CS cavalry units actually surrendered. I recently finished a biography of J.S. Mosby and he basically broke up (disbanded) his command, but to my understanding, they did not have a formal surrender. I wonder how many others chose to do it this way to avoid humiliation or because they were afraid of imprisonment.
