Most importantly, dated April 1865, less than 2 weeks later, General Lee surrendered at Appomattox. Exactly 2 weeks later, President Lincoln was assassinated. And the indications of Gen. Beauregard’s note point to the South not believing the war would be over any time soon. From the date of his letter, the Civil War was over 10 days later.
