Standing where Grant and Lee stood is palpable. (Even if it's a recreation) The guides are professional and knowledgeable.

The song "Will the Circle be... unbroken?" comes to mind. My youngest, and I started out this week at Ft. Sumter... and we ended the week here... at the end of the CSA. Though I have been to Virginia several times in the past, somehow, I had never quite made it: here. The place lived up to the historic place... More

My wife and I visited the sites of the last battles between the CSA and Union Armies. The buildings are very well maintained. Pastures and battlefields are well marked with descriptions of what happened where. There are several historical building you can visit such as the Appomattox Court House itself, the Tavern just behind it, the McLean House where the... More

We decided to do a historical vacation this year, including Revolutionary War and Civil War history. Appomattox was our 1st stop. You MUST do a free guided tour. Our volunteer guide was Albert. He did a wonderful job and brought the story to life. You will learn the most in a short amount of time on the guided tour! The... More

We went here for a couple of hours because we are civil war buffs. We thought the exhibits were well displayed, the park staff knowledgeable and friendly, and the grounds pristine. Definitely recommend stopping by to see where amazing history took place.

I expected more. The grounds are beautiful. The character actors do a great job of keeping up appearances. It's good to see that they're working on the buildings continously. Worth it just for the view but don't expect to much.

I really enjoyed the actors and the staff. Walking around on land so steeped in history is awe inspiring. Walking in to the buildings you get a real sense of how it must have felt and how graciously Grant handled the surrender.

Our group of 18 visited her on June 16. There was far more to see and do than I was expecting. An informative video; great displays of Civil War artifacts; a very interesting tour of the McLean House and two very well done "life history" performances, one by a young lady who lived here during the timeframe and another done...

Very impressed with the knowledge of our guide. To be where the surrender took place and the process of it, explained so well, made it easy to visualize. Learned some new bits of history.
