Frankenstein Paintings Collection
This extraordinary collection of George L. Frankenstein's five paintings of the village of Appomattox Court House depict this historic village and surrounding area as it appeared in the months after the surrender. Professor Frankenstein (1825-1911) spent four years traveling Civil War battlefields capturing scenes in oil on paper.
The paintings, on permanent exhibit at the Appomattox Court House NHP visitor center, not only provide insight into what the area looked like in the late 1860s but are of themselves beautiful works of art.
Did You Know?
After the fighting ended calls went out for Confederate leaders to be tried for treason. Grant insisted that Lee, who had been paroled at Appomattox, could not be put on trial, and the matter was dropped.
