This celebrated conference took place on board the steamer River Queen, on the Potomac. There were present President Lincoln, Gens. Grant and Sherman, and Admiral Porter. Gen. Sherman a few days before, with his army, had arrived at Goldsboro, after his march through the Carolinas. From there he was summoned to this conference. Gen. Sherman is pointing out the position of Gen. Johnson and his army, and explains his own plan of campaign. It was at this time that Gen. Sherman received his instructions from President Lincoln which subsequently led to the celebrated "proposed agreement." [P. 24.]
