Sixty years ago today—April 18, 1865
—General Joseph E. Johnston of the Con
federate army, and General William T.
Sherman, of the United States army, met
near the town of Durham, N. C., to talk
over terms of surrender. A tentative
agreement was reached. This, however,
failed to secure the sanction of United
States officials at Washington, and it was
not until April 26, 1865, that the two
Generals were in a position to affix
their signatures to the terms finally
general Sherman, after his victorious
march, including that portion of it “from
Atlanta to the sea” bad made his way
into North Carolina and had, on April 13,
1865, occupied the capital city of Ral
eigh—the last Confederatet State capital
to be actually occupied by Federal troops.
Raleigh, when the Federal forces arriv
ed, waß defenceless. Hence a peaceful
surrender on the part of a committee of
private citizens, who met the incoming
Federals under a flag of truse, about two
miles southwest of the State House, over
which the Confederate flag flew, until re
placed by the Stars and Stripes. Sher
man's army occupied Raleigh when news
of President Lincoln's assassination was
received. Citizens feared Retaliatory acts
on teb part of the federals, As the first
report was that the President had been
killed at the instance of Southerners.
However, there were no such acts. A fire
gave rise to excitement, but it was mere

right was granted him by a canon of
