The Lee Family Digital Archive is the largest online source for primary source materials concerning the Lee family of Virginia. It contains published and unpublished items, some well known to historians, others that are rare or have never before been put online. We are always looking for new letters, diaries, and books to add to our website. Do you have a rare item that you would like to donate or share with us? If so, please contact our curator, Colin Woodward, about how you can contribute to this historic project.

My Dear Col Taylor:

            Can you give me the names of the officers who sent General Pendleton to General Lee on the 8th of April to suggest a surrender of the Army.

            Gen Long mentions a list of officers handed in by P[endleton] to Gen Lee but does not give the names; only mentions my name as not approving the matter.

Very Truly Yours

J. Longstreet
