    Important Ulysses S. Grant Autograph Document Signed - "Surrender of the Army of Tennessee" "U.S. Grant Lt Gen", one page, 7.25" x 7.75", Washington, D.C., May 1, 1865. Writing from the "H Qrs. Armies of the United States", Lieutenant General Grant states here: "Authority is hereby granted J. L. Johnson and party of loyal refugees from western Va. and North Carolina to return to their homes by way of Charleston West Va. They will be allowed to take with them horses and such private property as they may be possessed of, and pistols for their protection on the road and at home. The party are all loyal and have taken the Oath of Allegiance." soiling with stain in lower left margins, smoothed folds. Very good condition. This travel pass, being personally penned by Grant, is a very rare document in of itself. Its historical significance rests in that it repeats the basic terms of surrender as dictated to the officers serving under Generals Lee and Johnston. Confederate officers below the rank of general were allowed to keep their horses and sidearms once they had given a parole and signed the "oath".

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
