All Quiet Now - Appomattox Court House, Virginia
All Quiet Now - Appomattox Court House, Virginia
     The date, April 9, 1865. The place, Appomattox Court House, Virginia.
     The Army of Northern Virginia commanded by General Lee, would surrender to the Army of the Potomac, commanded by General Grant. It was the beginning of the end to the American Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in American history, with estimates as high as 620,000 deaths.
     The following day, along this fence line, between lines of Union soldiers standing in reverence, over 25,000 Confederate soldiers would march to their designated points, to stack their arms and surrender their cherished battle-flags.
