April 23, 1865: Grant coming to Sherman unannounced

Ulysses S. Grant

Grant’s coming to order Sherman to end his truce with Johnston, and he’s not telling him in advance.


BEAUFORT, N. C., April 23, 1865-6 p. m.
Hon E. M STANTON,
Secretary of War, Washington:

Have just reached here and will start for Raleigh as soon as train can be obtained. No news here from Sherman. I shall not telegraph to him that I am on the way.

U. S. GRANT,
Lieutenant-General.
