The end of the civil war. 2 great generals meeting; dignified and honorable. Humbling and solemn place for sure. The rebuilt site was done beautifully and the information presented and artifacts displayed - awesome. You will learn something special when you visit.

This is just an open field about two miles from Appomattox Court House National Historical Park and a mile from the town of Appomattox. If you are a history buff, you should see this so you can understand the topography related to this battle.

The signage on the edges of the fields that have been maintained much as they were on those historic days in April 1865 gives you a good perspective of the way the troops must have prepared themselves for the actions to come.

There really is not a lot at this site, although there are a couple of good and informative waysides explaining the action. But most of the actual battlefield is now wooded. There is open ground at the rear of Reuben Lindsay Walker's artillery park, near...More

It was a nice tour of the Appomattox Battle Field, but the battle wasn't very big or long. It was the final last ditch effort for the south to try to escape being surrounded by the North. It leads right to Appomattox court House were...More

This site is not the Appomattox Court House National Historic Park. This is the site where part of General Custer's command captured a Confederate Artillery battery and blocked Lee's way to the railroad station and the much needed supplies. Not much here. Just 3 information...More

Each Civil War battlefield stop has its own features. Liked ending our trip with the real and recreated sites at Appomatox National Park. A few exhibits and a short film introduced us. An hour long talk by a Union Soldier reenactor was a fun way...More

This newly established, undeveloped battleground is where Union general Custer's calvary attack on Confederate general Walker's artillery led to General Lee's surrender of the Virginia army at Appomattox, and essentially the end of the Civil War. The site is basically an open field, and includes...More
