    The Surrenders:
    Appomattox Court House - April 9, 1865
    and Durham Station - April 26, 1865

    After the surrender of Fort Fisher, the remnants of the Third
    Battalion North Carolina Light Artillery were incorporated into
    General Joseph Johnston's army and was engaged at Bentonville on
    March 19, 1865 as General William T. Sherman's army pressed
    Johnston's troops. The battalion remained with Johnston's forces
    and was surrendered on April 26, 1865, at Durham Station. At the
    surrender, thirteen Bertie County men of the battalion were
    present. Three other Bertie County soldiers--members of cavalry
    units--were also present at the capitulation. On April 28, the
    Bertie County men were paroled. For them, the war was over.


    The Surrenders:
    Appomattox Court House - April 9, 1865
    and Durham Station - April 26, 1865

    After Grant's forces pushed General Lee's ragged Confederates
    out of the Petersburg trenches on April 2, Lee withdrew the
    remaining men of his to the west. On Thursday, April 6, Union
    forces captured thousands of Confederate soldiers, including five
    Bertie County men, members of Captain Joseph B. Cherry's cavalry
    company and Company C, Eleventh Regiment North Carolina Troops at
    the Battle of Sayler's Creek.
    During the night of April 7, the officers of the Eleventh
    Regiment North Carolina Troops--fully aware that after four arduous
    years of war, the end was close at hand--met and after
    consultation, decided that Captain Edward R. Outlaw of Company C
    should take charge of the regimental flag and ensure that it was
    not lost. The flag was removed from the staff never again to wave
    above the men of the regiment. The officers retired to a secluded
    thicket and burned the flag. The flag which had been borne in
    numerous battles and skirmishes and which Captain Francis W. Bird
    had so gallantly retrieved from the battlefield at Gettysburg on
    July 3, 1863, would never wave or be displayed as a Federal trophy.
    Lee's weary and haggard soldiers continue to straggle toward
    Appomattox Court House where on Sunday, April 9, Lee ordered his
    men to cease fighting. The time had come to curtail the bloodshed
    and end the conflict which had divided the nation. Lee formerly
    surrendered to Grant during the afternoon in the parlor of Wilmer
    McLean's home. Nineteen Bertie County men were present at the
    surrender.

    The thirty-five Bertie County men who surrendered with Lee's
    and Johnston's armies represented a little over four percent of the
    county men who had served in the Confederate Army. Death, disease,
    and desertion had taken its toll on the county's gray-clad
    warriors. The patriotic enthusiasm which had prevailed four years
    earlier in Bertie County when the county's sons were called to arms
    had long since died.


    . The percentage of military-age men who served in the Confederate
    Army is based on the number of such men the author identified
    during research and 1860 Federal census data for Bertie County.
    The author identified 804 Bertie County Confederate soldiers.
    According to the census, there were 1,395 white males aged thirteen
    to forty-four years residing in the county in the summer of 1860.
    These individuals would have, at some time during the war, been of
    conscription age (18 to 45 years) and therefore, liable for
    Confederate service. Based on this data, it is estimated that 57.6
    percent of the county's "military-age" males served in the
    Confederate Army.

    . Compiled Service Records of North Carolina's Confederate
    Soldiers (Thomas Miles Garrett - 5th Regt. NC State Troops; Francis
    Wilder Bird - 11th Regt. NCT; and Joseph B. Cherry - 59th Regt. NCT
    (4th Regt. NC Cav.)).
