Jared Harris: Ulysses S. Grant
Ulysses S. Grant : [to Lincoln] By outward appearance, you're 10 years older than you were a year ago.
Ulysses S. Grant : [Grant hands the Confederate peace commissioner's proposal back to them, covered in scribbled notes] Gentlemen, I suggest you work some changes into your proposal before you give it to the President.
[Turns and walks away. Stephens follows]
Senator R.M.T. Hunter : We're eager to be on our way to Washington.
Alexander Stephens : Mr Lincoln tell you to tell us this?
Ulysses S. Grant : [Grant takes a cup of coffee from a steward] It says 'securing peace for our two countries' and it goes on like that.
Alexander Stephens : I don't know what you...
Ulysses S. Grant : There's just one country. You and I, we're citizens of that country. I'm fighting to protect it from armed rebels.
[Pats Stephen's shoulder and goes to sit down]
Ulysses S. Grant : From you.
