In 1865 Lee signed the Amnesty Oath required in order to apply for citizenship. It was subsequently sent to Washington and misfiled because it was thought to be a copy and not the original.

In 1970 the document was located in the National Archives and Robert E. Lee was given citizenship by the Congress and the President in 1975.
