The idea that the Civil war was not won But Agreed to. Terms set by men that have always controlled the world thru acts of violence. The idea is that Generals Grant and Lee both wanted the same thing, they both wanted the American people to win. The difference that drove them both to war was because of a failure of the Northern states to add Jefferson Davis to the presidential election ballot. Remember both are violent men that prefer peace, Both are American men that want the greatest country in the world to continue as already established by the hero of every American Citizen "George Washington". They both could save the American dream as originally established, With of course "Terms of surrender" One of these terms of course was to never outlaw the rebels flag, And another term of course was a full pardon for the rebel army.
