I did not know the answer to the question either.

Holzhauer won $118,816 in the game that aired on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, having capped off his winnings by correctly answering this Final Jeopardy clue: “On May 1, 1869, these two men met at the White House, four years and three weeks after a more historic meeting between them.”

I wonder if he knew the answer to the question or put a guess together by knowing that Grant was President at the time and then guessed that Lee was the other party by calculating four years back to their Appomattox Court House meeting on April 9, 1865.

I would guess that he worked out the answer quickly, but still it was very impressive.
