Excerpt from Historical Sketch of the Forty-Fifth Illinois Regiment: With a Complete List of the Officers and Privates and an Individual Record of Each Man in the Regiment The next morning was the Sabbath, and a brighter and more beautiful morning never dawned. The 45th awoke to the glad news that the white ﬂa g proclaimed a cessation of hostilities and soon the mes sage come, that the Fort had uncondition ally surrendered to Gen. Grant. The 2d Brig. Had the honor of leading Grant's victorious army to take possession of the prize, and I remember how grandly the old regiment looked that morning as they marched in, with their saber bayonets glis tening and reﬂecting in the bright rays of the sun, until it looked like a long streak of sunshine itself.
