After the Civil War, the railroad moved several miles south and by-passed Appomattox. As result, this little hamlet probably looks exactly like it did when the Lee surrendered to Grant.
About a mile up the road, there are several graves of men who died on the last day of the war. Imagine how heart-breaking.
This is very sacred ground. Both sides must have been so happy that the carnage was over.
