The most interesting is the location it was held. The home was owned by Wilmer McLean. He had moved there in 1861 from his home near the site of the First Battle of Bull Run. He had seen that battle fought on his front lawn and wanted to move away from the battles and avoid involvement with the war!

Grant remembered meeting Lee during the Mexican American War, but Lee was unable to remember a single detail about him.
