history-Civil War

Upon retreating from Petersburg, were there any options open to Lee that might have prolonged the War? Please chech if my answer is correct... No, Lee retreated from Petersburg and attempted to link up with the remnants of Confed. Gen. Johnson's defeated army in order to continue to war, however, Union cavalry led by Sheridan, a close friend of Grant, was able to stop the two armies from converging. Lee and the Army of Virginia reluctantly surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. ???

  3. There was mumbling among Lee's troops about splitting up and continuing a guerrilla war from the shadows. However Lee wisely stopped that idea in its tracks.
