General Lee and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia surrendered in the McLean house here on April 9, 1865, ending the American Civil War. The surrender ultimately ended slavery and reunited the United States. Appomattox Court House National Historic Park has a number of programs and exhibits, as well as a theater which preserve the history of the end of the Civil War. There are also nearly 8 miles of hiking trails here for visitors to explore both history and nature.

Appomattox Court House National Historic Park is somewhat dog friendly. Dogs are allowed on the grounds and on all trails, but they are not allowed inside buildings, so you'll miss some of the main attractions here with your dog.
