Grant, they met for a conference that afternoon, between the lines and near the Jackson Road.  The terms of capitulation were agreed upon by correspondence after the meeting, and July 4th, the army was surrendered to Gen. Grant.  The Aggregate reported casualties in the army during the campaign and defense were, killed 1302, wounded 3488, and missing 3448, total 8236.
