National Park Service

Appomattox Court House National Historical Park is where General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant at the McLean House bringing about the beginning of the end of the American Civil War. What was the significance of General U. S. Grant accepting General R. E. Lee’s surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia? What did the promise of freedom mean to the enslaved people as close as McLean’s back yard and as far away as Texas? Appomattox interns will receive a small stipend for their time.
