This is a hand-written copy of Confederate General Robert E. Lee's General Orders No. 9, the order informing Lee's Army of Northern Virginia that Lee had surrendered to the Union commander, General Ulysses S. Grant. This copy was made at the time the order was first drafted. The copy was found secreted within a wall at the Sorrel-Weed House, in Savannah, Georgia
