The Civil War was drawing to a close in the first week of April, 1865. On the 9th, Palm Sunday, Lee and Grant would meet to call an end to the fighting in Virginia. No more bloodshed as over 618,000 men gave their lives to determine whether there would be one country or two. A century and a half later, Appomattox could boast “Where Our Nation Reunited” and The Best Part of the Civil War…The End commemorates this quintessential American experience.
