Grant and Lincoln

On April 3, President Lincoln met here with General Grant for the last time. Petersburg had just fallen and they awaited news of the surrender of Richmond, while discussing future plans for a reunified America. Thomas Wallace had been an ally of President Lincoln’s in Congress and the family welcomed President Lincoln and provided for seating accommodations for him and General Grant near the front door, where they conferred for hours before the ultimate surrender of Richmond.
