McLean House. It was here that generals Grant and Lee met with members of their staffs to negotiate the surrender of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. A more unusual story is of the McLean. They previously owned a home near Manassas. During the battle of Bull Run, the Confederates used their home as a headquarters. After the battle, McKean decided to move away from the turmoil of War, but such as not the case, as the War followed them. The Mclean were present at the first major battle of the Civil War, and the final surrender took place in their living room.
