History

History information is some background and history about the location. This is meant to be a basic summary. Below the history records you will find sources in which you can click on to find out more information. There may be multiple history records per location.


"Appomattox" is one of a few place names that is not only shorthand for an historic event - the surrender of General R. E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia and the effective end of the Confederate States of America - but also a metaphor for the end of the war, and for a new beginning as a reunified nation. The American Civil War Museum - Appomattox's permanent exhibit explores these overlapping stories using more than 400 artifacts, photographs, and documents. Included in the exhibit is the uniform coat and sword that Robert E. Lee wore to the surrender, the Appomattox parole lists, and a dozen audiovisual stations that bring rich human stories to life.
