When was Robert S. Davis House created?
Robert S. Davis House was created in 1859.
Robert E. Lee faced up to it that his army couldn't have gone on any longer, and he surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House. His President, Jefferson Davis, was still talking wildly about fighting on, as he fled into Georgia. This was just big talk. He was in fact running away from his responsibilities.
Neither Abraham Lincoln nor Jefferson Davis (president of the Confederacy) was present at the Appomattox Court House. Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant on April 9, 1865, following an hour and a half long meeting during which it was decided that Confederate cavalry and officers would be allowed to retain their horses and side arms.
