April - 1865

Peers House - Appomattox Court House, Virginia 

After the fall of Petersburg, Lee's Army of Northern Virginia moved west along the Appomattox River toward Lynchburg. General Grant's Army of the Potomac chased the confederates and finally caught up with them near the small village of Appomattox Court House. In early April,  150 years ago, the American Civil War was about to come to an end. Ragged, hungry and exhausted soldiers prepared for the final confrontation between the North and the South as the two armies met at Appomattox.
