Willie McLean and the Civil War Surrender (On My Own History)
Eleven-year-old Willie McLean knows that General Lee will defeat the Yankees and win the Civil War, he just knows it. When a battle moves to the fields near his home in Appomattox, Virginia, Willies thrilled - especially when General Lee, himself, comes to Willies house! But then General Grant comes, too. Overhearing the two men talk, Willie hears one word: Surrender. Is the war really over?
