Johnston and Sherman’s April 1865 Meeting

Here are historians Craig Symonds and John Marszalek giving an excellent team presentation on the 1865 meeting of Generals Joseph E. Johnston and William T. Sherman in North Carolina, leading to Johnston’s surrender. This presentation was at the 2016 Lincoln Forum Symposium.

The video’s description reads, “Craig Symonds and John Marszalek talked about the meeting between Generals William Sherman and Joseph Johnston to discuss future of the Union Army at the end of the Civil War. The April 1865 meeting happened just two days after President Lincoln’s assassination and a week after Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox.”
