Why were General Ulysses S. Grant's surrender terms to General Robert E. Lee at Appomattox Court House considered "generous"?
He promised government jobs to all of Lee's soldiers.

I would say B. He allowed Lee's men to keep their horses and side arms.
General Grant had already discussed terms with President Lincoln. President Lincoln wanted peace to come to the Union and felt he needed to treat the Confederate soldiers such that they would not rebel again. The terms of the surrender were generous: Confederate soldiers would have to turn in their rifles, but they could return home immediately and keep their horses or mules. They were also given food as many of them were very hungry.
