    General Robert E. Lee- Mathew Brady’s Last Wartime Photograph Mathew B. Brady (American, near Lake George, New York 1823?–1896 New York) Date: 1865 Medium: Albumen silver print from glass negative Dimensions: Image: 14 × 9.3 cm (5 1/2 × 3 11/16 in.) Classification: Photographs Credit Line: Gilman Collection, Museum Purchase, 2005 Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his army to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, on April 9, 1865. The Civil War was over. If not whole, the nation was at least reunited, and the slow recovery of Reconstruction could begin. As soon as he heard that Lee had left Appomattox and returned to Richmond, Mathew B. Brady headed there with his camera equipment. The Lees’ Franklin Street residence had survived the fires that had devastated many of the commercial sections of the city. Through the kindness of Mrs. Lee and a Confederate colonel, Brady received permission to photograph the general on April 16, 1865, just two days after President Lincoln’s assassination. Brady’s portrait of General Lee holding his hat, on his own back porch, is one of the most reflective and thoughtful wartime likenesses. The fifty-eight-year-old Confederate hero poses in the uniform he had worn at the surrender. It would be Brady’s last wartime photograph.

    Leroy Hermance served in the 67th and 188th New York Volunteers. He wears the rare and unofficial color bearer insignia above his sergeant's stripes. Hermance attended the 50th reunion at Gettysburg in 1913 and fell from the train returning to his home, resulting in his death.

    The first Civil War casualty to be buried in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn was a 12-year-old drummer for a New York regiment. Clarence McKenzie, a local boy fatally wounded in an accidental shooting in Maryland, was buried June 14, 1861, two months after the Union garrison at Fort Sumter surrendered to Confederate forces.
