This is how it all happened :( Saylur creak was our final battle. The day of April 6.. the saddest day. Lee surrendered in Apommatoox Courthose, it was excruciating to watch so i stayed outside of Wilmer Mclean’s house, he was the guy that allowed both generals to address the issues in his very own front room of his house. I kept my rifled musket. Nothing else just that very weapon, you might ask why, well because it's the only weapon I owned. If they weren't our own weapons or horses we had to relinquish them, so Jinny the horse is now in the north.. I had to make a promise that I didn't want to keep and it was to not fight again and to go home. But it's not simple, I fought to keep slaves, I fought to destroy the Abolitionist , who knows if they free the slaves. I'm sad I probably am not making sense I apologize.
With a brooken hart, Lawrence
