The Civil War Ends: The Civil War finally ended on April 9, 1865 when General Robert E. Lee surrendered at the Appomattox Court House in Virginia. Lincoln wanted the country to #heal, #forgive, and #rebuild. He wanted to be generous to the southern states in helping them during the reconstruction. Unfortunately, he would not live to see the country rebuild.“ #USHistory #AbrahamLincoln #Illinois #American #politicians
