Handbill. Small 8vo (5" X 8"). Near fine.

Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia to Lieutenant-General Grant and the Army under his command." Single word penned at upper left ("Major"?) in a light brown ink of the period. Accompanied by a modern (ca. 1965) 8½" X 11" heavy stock reproduction titled "The Surrender," being "A true reproduction of a primitive painting found. in the back country of North Carolina after having been lost for nearly ninety years.
