So your saying Lee was confused as to the terms of Parole of surrender if he wrote a letter to Grant asking for an explanation after he was charged with treason? follow the link in the first post of this thread.I'm not familiar with Lees's letter to Grant. Did Lee ask Grant that the parole specifically exempted any future charges of treason? I'm pretty that if anything as serious as treason was mentioned Lee would have remembered and there would have been no need for a later letter. If you have information that such a clause was included in the parole agreement at Appomattox please divulge your source-- no personal opinion, please.
