Following the surrender of the Confederacy at Appomattox in April 1865, towns throughout the Shenandoah Valley were temporarily occupied by U. S. Army Forces tasked with solidifying federal control and maintaining order. This broadside was posted throughout the town of Lexington, Virginia -- home to the Virginia Military Institute and Washington & Lee University (then called Washington College).
