    The Surrender at Greensboro, S.C.: An excellent example of the Greensboro Parole.
    Next to the surrender of Appomattox, General Joseph E. Johnston's surrender to Major General W. T. Sherman in Greensboro, N.C. was certainly the most significant. The parole is made out to Capt. C. J. Leigh and is signed by Larkin Smith, Asst. Q. M. Gen. CSA and by Brig. Gen. William Hartsuff, U.S.A. The parole is dated May 1st, 1865 and is in excellent condition. With it is a hand colored print from Harper's Weekly "Paroling Rebel Prisoners at Greensboro, North Carolina" which would look great framed with the parole. From the Calvin Packard Civil War Battlefield Letter Collection
