We know the Battle of Appomattox Court House was a decisive blow to the Confederacy. We also know the terms of surrender. What we don’t know is what tune these terms were sung to, or why Ely S. Parker was dressed like a pretty, pretty lady.
The meeting of Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant to end the Civil War is a storied and vital part of American history. It is also a buddy comedy. With a musical number. Surreal and with streams and streams of profanity, sketch duo Andrew Coppola and Joe Tuzzi painstakingly deconstruct one of the most important events in our country’s history.
