On April 9, 1865, the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia in the McLean House in the village of Appomattox Court House, Virginia signaled the end of the nation’s largest war. Two important questions about its future were answered. Could the nation survive a civil war intact, and would that nation exist without slavery? The answer to both was yes and a new nation was born.

    This place is very historic and interesting. Make sure you view the quick film at the visitor center. We stopped in at the Clover Hill Tavern where the volunteer was showing a few children how to print a paroled prisoner’s pass, which was required for Confederate soldiers to have when they traveled back home. They even gave us a few for a souvenir. Our favorite place was touring the reconstructed, McLean House – the volunteer was very knowledgeable and informative. Definitely worth a trip here!
