If you are looking for a scout or volunteer project Appomattox Court House NHP has many opportunities. Scouts can gain a badge by doing the History Trail education activity that includes answering questions and pick up trash. In addition to picking up trash on the 4 1/2 mile History Trail, they can help paint and fix fences or with a landscaping project. For more information see our Scout Program page or contact Alyssa Holland, Volunteer Coordinator, at 434-352-8987 ex. 234 or e-mail us.

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.
