Grant and Staff - Lt. Col. Parker on left.

The formal copy of Grant's surrender terms was scribed by Ely Parker, a Seneca Indian. Lee remarked to Parker, “I am glad to see one real American here.” Parker later stated, “I shook his hand and said, We are all Americans.” Parker's library is in the Appomattox Court House NHP collection.
