Appomattox Court House
National Historic Park

Appomattox Court House

Appomattox Court House, Virginia, was a town in Virginia which was the county seat of Appomattox County, a small rural settlement. The building pictured above is the actual courthouse. The town is where General Robert E. Lee of the Confederacy surrendered to General U.S. Grant of the United States Army.

The McLean house

The surrender took place in the McLean house.

Where Grant and Lee signed the surrender papers

Generals Grant and Lee met in the McLean house, chatted a few minutes, then signed the surrender papers, effectively ending the War of the Rebellion (also called the Civil War and the War of Southern Independence), in 1865.


The park is very well maintained, and features displays of life in rural Virginia in mid-nineteenth century.
