Did You Know?
The formal copy of U.S. Grant's surrender terms for the Confederate Army at Appomattox was scribed by Ely S. Parker, a Seneca Indian and Lieutenant Colonel during the Civil War. As President, Grant appointed Parker Commissioner of Indian Affairs. He was the first Native American to hold that post.
