    Walk the old country lanes where Robert E. Lee, Commanding General of the Army of Northern Virginia, surrendered his men to Ulysses Grant, General-in-Chief of all United States forces, on April 9, 1865. Imagine the events that signaled the end of the Southern States' attempt to create a separate nation.

    The National Park encompasses approximately 1800 acres of rolling hills in rural central Virginia. The site includes the McLean home - where Lee made his formal surrender - and the village of Appomattox Court House, Virginia, the former county seat for Appomattox County.
