Filming in the park.
Work on a new park film will be done from July 14 to July 17, 2014 that will result in partial closures around the village. The McLean House is expected to have interrupted service on July 15 and July 17.
There are three prepared curriculum based programs available for teachers in this section:
Each provide lesson plans and activities to teach the story of the surrender at Appomattox Court House and are directly tied to the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs). Each contain classroom work and activities to be completed at the park.
Questions concerning either program should directed to the park's education coordinator, Brandon Chamberlain by e-mail or phone, 434-352-8987 ext. 231
