In April 1865, as the war drew to a close, General Joseph E. Johnston met General William Tecumseh Sherman at the home of James and Nancy Bennett, near Durham, NC, to discuss the surrender terms of the Confederate armies under Johnston’s command. It became the largest surrender in the American Civil War. 89,270 Confederate soldiers were surrendered in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, & Florida.
