President Abraham Lincoln and his youngest son Tad came to Richmond, Virginia, on April 4, 1865-three days after the Confederate capital had fallen to Union General Grant's army. Though weary from the war's long travails, Lincoln came "to bind up the nation's wounds." As a journalist who witnessed the visit reported, the president "came not as a conqueror, not with bitterness in his heart, but with kindness. He came as a friend, to alleviate sorrow and suffering-to rebuild what has been destroyed."
