A family visit to Appomattox Court House National Historic Park provides kids with a realistic view of an American past unlike anything they are likely to experience in any amusement park. From our museum's fascinating collection of artifacts and Civil War relics to the rolling hills and wide lanes, this park is truly kid-friendly. Be sure to explore the Junior Ranger program for kids 6-13, and the Civil War 150th Anniversary Trading Cards for kids of all ages.

Summer Camp
Summer Camp will not be offered in 2014. We look forward to it's return in future years and are sorry for the present inconvenience.

Grant

After the war there was talk of putting Lee on trial for treason. Grant wrote, "I will resign the command of the army rather than execute any order to arrest Lee.” That settled the matter, and Lee was never tried.
