Monday on Political Rewind: It’s been more than 150 years since Confederate general Robert E. Lee surrendered to Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox, Va., effectively ending the Civil War.

The state Senate passed yesterday a first deluge of measures designed by Republicans to change how Georgians vote.
