Study The Groove With Ryan Leslie.
April 9 has traditionally been something of an historic day when it comes to putting an end to bitter wars.
On this date in 1865, General Robert E. Lee of the Confederate Army surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to Ulysses S. Grant, the general of the Union Army, at the Appomattox Courthouse in Virginia. This ultimately put an end to the Civil War.
Tonight, meanwhile, you can fight the good fight against the working week. You've go some decent ammo, too.
